Be prepared for weather and traffic conditions during exams. Allow yourself extra time to get to the Law School at least 15 minutes before the scheduled time of your exam even if this means leaving an hour earlier than usual.

If you are more than a couple of minutes late for your exam, go directly to the Student Affairs Office, Suite 1255, on the first floor. Don't go to the exam room.

Intellectual Property Law Institute (IPLI)

Registration information 2022-23

*Subject to Change

The Intellectual Property Law Institute (I.P.L.I.) was created in 1987 through the efforts of the State Bar of Michigan and the law faculties of the University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University and the University of Windsor.

IPLI is dedicated to providing basic knowledge and advanced legal education and furthering knowledge, scholarship and research in the law governing the richly diverse fields of intellectual property: patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and know-how, computers and related technology, communications and media, entertainment, technology transfer, trade regulation and the arts.

The primary purpose of IPLI is to facilitate the offering of an exceptional and rich curriculum for law students and lawyers in the field of intellectual property.

Full time students at each of the three law schools may register for any IPLI course and will pay the tuition required at their home institution. The course will be credited towards their law degree. In the case of lawyers in the field of intellectual property, tuition will be paid directly to IPLI.

Online registration is available for all three institutions.
