The Cell for Studies in Intellectual Property Rights (CSIPR) was established in the National Law Institute University, Bhopal, with an aim to promote and develop knowledge in Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). The primary goal of the CSIPR is to enhance awareness of IPR in the University by involving students in a meaningful discourse.

In order to do so, the CSIPR organizes conferences, seminars and guest lectures regularly. The CSIPR promotes research in IPR across India by organizing presentation of research papers by students and research scholars. In conducting these programmes, the CSIPR has worked in collaboration with authorities, such as the Ministry of Human Resource and Development and renowned organizations like the Consortium of Women Entrepreneurs of India.

The CSIPR facilitates publication of the annual flagship NLIU IPR Law Journal, which publishes articles on various national and international issues of IPR law. Through the Journal, the CSIPR aims to introduce students to myriad aspects of IPR, so as to enable them to gain a deeper insight into the multitude of contemporary issues surrounding it.
