UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law has one of the most respected and comprehensive intellectual property law programs in the country, and offers our students extensive opportunities for practical training. Our Intellectual Property Scholars‘ Roundtable brings scholars from across the country and around the world. At the Intellectual Property Scholarship Redux Conference, senior scholars revisit work they had previously published and discuss what they got right, or what they would do differently. And our Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property hosts regular lunch and learn series that bring together students, faculty and outside experts. Our students gain invaluable hands-on experience practicing IP through externships and clinics.
Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic
Students help clients turn their dreams into strategic business ventures. Clients include entrepreneurs, authors, artists, inventors, musicians, publishers, and individuals operating small businesses or nonprofit organizations. These clients are confronting complex and crucial issues pertaining to business formation and organization, copyright and trademark registration and protection, licensing, and small business transactions. Without legal help, their ventures may never get off the ground.
International Technology Transfer Institute
Students work on scientific breakthroughs around the world. ITTI promotes science, technology, and innovation in developing countries by building capacity and capability in intellectual property management, technology transfer, and patent information access, assembly, and analysis. Clinic collaborators include world-class organizations such as the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, United States Patent and Trademark Office, the World Bank, the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the World Health Organization.
