A working knowledge of intellectual property (e.g. completed the IP Survey class) would be helpful, but not required.

The student will them provide some analysis such as supplying feedback as to which schools offer policies UofL may want to adopt and looking for gaps in UofL's current policy. The project will take approximately 30 hours and it is hoped the student can completed the work by late September.
