The DePaul Technology/Intellectual Property Clinic (TIP Clinic®) was one of the first law school clinical programs to provide transactional services exclusively in the areas of patent, trademark and copyright law to clients who could not afford to pay private counsel for these services. The TIP Clinic® is a natural extension of the College of Law's nationally ranked IP/IT program, and its mission is "Protecting the Creative Works of Creative Minds®."
