An Industry Leader
The Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal was organized in 1990. Each year the Fordham IPLJ publishes one volume, comprised of four separate books in all areas of intellectual property law including: Patent law, Copyright law, Trademark law, Telecommunications, Internet law, Counterfeiting, Bootlegging and piracy issues, Entertainment and sports law, First Amendment rights, and Mass media law. Each book includes Articles, Essays, Comments, and Notes written by distinguished outside contributors, such as law professors, judges, and practicing lawyers, as well as student members of the Fordham IPLJ and Fordham University School of Law.
In 2014, according to surveys compiled by Washington & Lee University, the Fordham IPLJ was ranked #1 law journal in arts, entertainment & sports law, and #6 in intellectual property law. The Fordham IPLJ articles have been read into the Congressional Record, cited in the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and in amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court.
