Abstract: The human resource component is a critical bridge between IPR protection, innovation promotion, and economic development. This paper reviews efforts to create a replicable model for teaching IP and innovation law based upon two decades of building and teaching such a curriculum in the United States to law students, scientists and engineers, business managers, and government officials. One broad point of emphasis is the importance of the cross-disciplinary classroom (equally addressing the needs and interests of those groups of students) for the development of a cadre of ‘IP professionals’. But development of an IP profession, standing alone, is inadequate. Hence, the second point of emphasis is the need to impart highly specialized transactional, managerial, and negotiation skills, to turn ‘IP professionals’ into true ‘innovation professionals’ who can serve as a platform for a truly indigenous and self-perpetuating ‘infrastructure of innovation’.
