The Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MIPLC) is a research and education center in intellectual property and competition law based in Munich, Germany. It was founded in 2003. The MIPLC is a collaboration between the Law School at George Washington University and three top-notch German institutions: the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, the University of Augsburg, and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). In addition, the MIPLC organizes scientific conferences. Because of its international faculty and students from all over the world, the MIPLC offers a truly international and interdisciplinary experience. Our program is much smaller than others, with a maximum of 38 students per year. This ensures intensive interaction among students, professors, and staff, as well as personalized assistance. Their study program is specialized, fully accredited, and intensive, making it suitable for both lawyers and science/engineering graduates, as well as students from other backgrounds. The modules are taught entirely in English and are designed to teach all practical aspects of intellectual property through simulations, case studies, and an optional internship. The study program, like the students, is truly international and interdisciplinary here. They hold degrees in law, economics, engineering, natural sciences, and other disciplines. They come from all over the world to the MIPLC to prepare for exciting careers in the IP industry, particularly as attorneys, patent agents, judges, business experts, scientists, engineers, and university faculty members. The MIPLC is especially proud of its distinguished faculty, which is one of the foundations of any educational institution. Among the highly respected researchers and practitioners here are about 60 active and tenured professors with a wealth of experience. They are at ease in a variety of professional settings.
