I know Boalt, GW, BU, etc. are all strong in IP in general, but idk about copyright law in particular. And honestly, you shouldn't ever pick a school based on such a narrow speciality area. At any school, you can take a copyright course and learn the basic lingo of the field.

If you can't get in to those, try Michigan, Virginia, Penn, or Berkeley.

Copyright is one class, and one in which much of the blackletter law is pretty clear. It makes me sick to my stomach to think that schools would pitch entire curricula/marketed "strengths" around copyright law. I usually don't care about those who would attend a low-ranked school for whatever reason, but these schools are evil for leading with that pitch.

If you want to be good at copyright law get into a school that will get you into a firm that actually has enough soft-ip lit to satiate you. The firms that actually get good IP lit tend to be the best lit teams/boutiques in the country. Think Boies, Quinn, Keker, Kirkland, etc.

Failing these, I'd suggest looking at Duke, Cornell, Northwestern, Georgetown, and Texas.

Then of course you can either:

1. Retake
2. Prostitue your body for retake money.
3. Be a cashier at CVS.
4. Kill yourself.

Not sure, but the specialty rankings always seem to place these schools high for this area. I don't put much stock in specialty rankings, but perhaps it speaks to the breath of courses in this area, the quality of the professors in the area, etc.

BU and Boalt do have great IP reputations, and place well into two of the very largest IP markets. I know nothing about GW's IP program.
