Contact the IP Venture Clinic

Because of the student-supervision model of the Intellectual Property Venture Clinic at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, we are limited in how many matters we can take on at a given time, and all potential clients are required to consent to students representing them (under clinical faculty supervision). 

Cases are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for individual and small businesses located in Northeast Ohio seeking legal advice associated with intellectual property and possible procurement of patents, trademarks, and copyrights.

If you think you have a matter that the clinic may be able to help you with, please email, and, if we are taking new matters, we will send you a link to our intake form.
