2 Since 1897, the University of Illinois College of Law has offered students a rigorous, broad-ranging, and innovative legal education on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, one of the world s great research universities.

3 Academics With a nationally renowned faculty, a rich and diverse curriculum, myriad opportunities for professional training, and the expansive resources of a world-class, comprehensive research university, Illinois Law features a first-rate academic program designed to prepare students to excel in their future professional careers. TOP-NOTCH FACULTY The Illinois faculty are known for their expertise and national visibility, their engaged approach to teaching, their open-door policy with respect to students, and their strong commitment to students professional development. They also bring a range of perspectives to their teaching and research: in addition to their juris doctors, about half of the faculty hold advanced graduate degrees in fields ranging from computer engineering to medicine. CUTTING-EDGE CURRICULUM Illinois Law s curriculum is both timely and robust. In the past few years, the College of Law has added three award-winning clinics, new courses in venture capital and microfinance, and an innovative Chicago Program, for which Illinois Law was named to the National Jurist s 2013 list of Most Innovative Law Schools. GLOBAL COMMUNITY The effective lawyer in the 21st century is a global lawyer. Illinois has particular strengths in international trade law, commercial law, and human rights law and a proud tradition of training foreign lawyers, governmental officials, and legal educators. Through the Global Law Fellows Program, students have the opportunity to work in leading foreign law offices in Asia and South America. By cultivating global awareness, Illinois builds networks and collaborations and prepares students to be at the forefront of the next generation of lawyers and legal scholars.

4 The Chicago Program The Chicago Program offers a semester-long program of Chicago-based courses and events for interested third-year students. Taught by leading practitioners and College faculty, past course offerings include International Bankruptcy, International Tax, Executive Compensation, and the Chicago Litigation Practicum a simulated federal court litigation that takes students from client interviews, through discovery, through a live motion hearing. Events and lectures are open to all third-year students, offering fantastic opportunities to network with the College s more than 4,000 Chicago-based alumni. Launched in 2012, the Chicago Program is designed to enrich the College s curriculum, expand professional opportunities for students, and involve alumni and other practitioners more closely in the College s educational mission. The Program has four principal objectives: to provide enhanced skills-related training; to broaden exposure to specialized areas of legal practice; to orient students to the global legal market; and to facilitate connections among students, alumni, and prospective employers in Chicago, the nation, and the world. Past courses have been taught in the Illini Center in downtown Chicago, the Dirksen Federal Building, The Chicago Bar Association, and in the offices of several of the nation s preeminent law firms, including Kirkland & Ellis LLP and McDermott Will & Emery. the program

5 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TECHNOLOGY LAW When it comes to top environments in which to explore intellectual property law, few compare to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, an epicenter of innovation and discovery. In this fertile environment, the curriculum and faculty at the College of Law cover a deep and broad spectrum of intellectual property and technology law, including in the areas of trademark, internet, patent, copyright, supercomputing, biotechnology, information science, and engineering. Campus, state, and national leaders solicit the faculty s legal expertise on IP issues arising from a host of new technologies, and companies like Google and Microsoft currently fund research at Illinois Law. Advanced Courses in Intellectual Property and Technology Law Advanced Patent Practice Advanced Trial Advocacy: Intellectual Property Antitrust Law Current Issues in Patent Defenses Digital Forensics Entrepreneurship: Representing the Tech Startup Intellectual Property Moot Court Competition Journal of Law, Technology and Policy Patent Law Clinic Patent Prosecution Innovation Policy and Biopharmaceutical Industry Intellectual Property Transactions International Intellectual Property Patent Litigation Patent Research and Strategy Seminar Transactional IP Clinical, Experiential, and Extracurricular Opportunities in Intellectual Property and Technology Law Intellectual Property Legal Society Internet and Technology Law Association Sports and Entertainment Law Society Technology and the Law ILLINOIS CYBER SECURITY SCHOLARS PROGRAM Supported by a significant grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and capitalizing on the particular strengths of the University of Illinois in computer science, engineering, and intellectual property law, the Illinois Cyber Security Scholars Program (ICSSP) trains the next generation of specialists capable of protecting the nation s cyber infrastructure. Open to second-year students with a background in computer science or engineering, ICSSP offers students full reimbursement for tuition and fees and a living stipend. Students receive a certificate in cyber security upon completion of the program and undertake a two-year term of employment with the federal government after graduation. Through ICSSP, Illinois engineering and law students receive hands-on training from the nation s top legal and computer science experts and join an emerging field in which there is a significant shortage of knowledgeable workers with multidisciplinary backgrounds. It s a demand that is guaranteed to grow as the U.S. increasingly relies on cyber infrastructure, which provides the backbone for our defense, energy, financial, and telecommunication systems, among others.

6 Joint Degrees Capitalizing on the University s depth of resources, the College of Law collaborates with University graduate departments to offer multiple joint degree programs. While students must apply for admission to both programs and receive pre-approval from each department, those departments will recognize a number of credits from the corresponding program to allow students to earn both degrees in a shorter period of time.
