Transatlantic Summer Academy

For one week each year, Case Western Reserve University School of Law organizes or takes part in the Transatlantic Intellectual Property Summer Academy jointly with other schools and universities around the world. Faculty includes highly-regarded academics from top-ranked law schools around the world, including Bocconi University.

The course features leading IP scholars and researchers from multiple countries in Europe and North America. The number of participants is limited to 50. Attendees must meet one of the following:

  • have a graduate degree in law, economics or engineering;
  • have an undergraduate degree in law (subject to a selection procedure);
  • be a current American JD or graduate student; or
  • be a young researcher or professional working in TTOs.

The program costs $1,200. Participants are responsible for booking their own travel, accommodation and meals.

A participatory and interactive teaching approach is used for all lessons, including business examples and studies, practical exercises and direct contact opportunities with IP operators and companies. Free tutor assistance is also available.

An optional daily recreational program is available in advance to participants and includes invitations to cultural and social activities at free or limited costs.

Attendance certificates are granted at the completion of the program.
