GW. Even though specialty rankings are widely believed to be bullshit, GW places 3rd, behind only Stanford and Berkeley for IP Law.

Close thread.

I disagree. BU is 10th in IP and top 5 in Health Law. Especially if you are interested in health related IP, I think BI could be a better choice. Plus BU is a higher ranked school.

You say you want East Coast. If you want D.C. area, I think GW is a better choice. If you want Boston, I think BU is a better choice. If you want NYC, I think BU is a better choice (though this is a gut feeling).

For what it's worth, I'm at Yale (with no IP faculty) and I do not even think I will be able to take all the IP courses offered here. If you have a technical degree, you don't need to take seven IP course in order to get a good IP job. Two or three will be fine. You will find that at either school.

I only think GW is an obvious choice if you want to take more than 4 IP courses while in law school. Perhaps you do. But that seems crazy to me.
