Patent Law Clinic

SMU Dedman Law has been chosen to become part of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) law school clinic certification program. The law school will house two separate clinics, one for patent and another for trademark, and will offer services for small start-up companies and individuals, as well as provide essential skills training for law students. The USPTO chose SMU because of its curriculum, pro bono service to the public, and community networking and outreach.
