These seven modules are designed to present the principal components of patent law and to explore the varying shapes those components take in the legal systems of the United States, Europe, China, and India. Each module is intended to occupy one week of a university-level course on patent law, although they may be taught in a more compressed format.

All variants of the PatentX course should begin with this curriculum. After completing it, instructors can and should construct custom courses by choosing among the materials included in the PatentX Options. Suggestions concerning how they might do so are available in PatentX Syllabi.
