NKU Chase Law and Informatics Institute expands

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY (FOX19) - The Northern Kentucky University Chase College of Law will be expanding the newly formed NKU Chase Law and Informatics Institute.

The school will be adding six new courses to expand its program in the field of law and informatics.

The first three courses, "Information Privacy Law," "Introduction to CyberLaw" and "Drafting & Negotiating Intellectual Property Licenses," will be offered on Tuesday evenings beginning in January. Three additional new courses, "Copyright Law," "Trademark Law" and "International Intellectual Property Law" will be offered beginning the following semester.

The law school previously focused on more exclusively on patent law as well as the fields of entertainment and telecommunications. The school says these new courses significantly enhance the program of study. The new courses are part of an academic expansion that joins the ongoing outreach activities and scholarship development of the new institute.
