Chicago-Kent College of Law and Loyola University Chicago School of Law jointly sponsor and host the Chicago Intellectual Property Colloquium. Each year during the spring semester, Chicago-Kent and Loyola invite six nationally-renowned intellectual property scholars to Chicago to discuss their current research projects before intellectual property faculty from Chicago-area law schools and students from Chicago-Kent and Loyola. The topics typically provide students with exposure to a broad range of IP topics, both domestic and international and both theoretical and empirical.
