Additional Comments This course should be of interest to all those who expect to practice general civil (as opposed to criminal) law and especially those who are interested in civil litigation. It should also be of interest to those who for any reason cannot take a course in intellectual property, since brief coverage is given to some basic intellectual property ideas in copyright and trademark law.
