Center for Law and Intellectual Property
The Center for Law and Intellectual Property at Texas A&M School of Law (CLIP) is committed to excellence in the study and practice of intellectual property law.
Intellectual property permeates nearly every aspect of our economy and our culture. From art to agriculture, publishing to plastics, sitcoms to semiconductors, intellectual property rights provide the legal basis for protecting, producing, and monetizing the products of our innovation and creativity. For many clients, intellectual property rights – primarily patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets – are one of their most valuable assets. Yet intellectual property is often misunderstood, inadequately protected, and underdeveloped.
By combining classroom time with hands-on experience, we ensure that Texas A&M law students are well prepared to navigate this complex field – solving problems and maximizing opportunities for their clients.
