The Clinic class is the lecture component of the Clinic experience. Unless the student has previously taken the Intellectual Property & Transaction Clinic-Class combination, enrollment in the class is required in conjunction with enrollment in the Clinic. The class will cover lawyering skills and the mechanics, skills, ethics, and decision-making exercises which reflect many of the projects assigned to students in the clinic. In particular, students will be asked to demonstrate literacy in obtaining information through public and fee-based databases, through client interviews, and internal resources to properly identify client issues, analyze information, strategize options, engage in participatory model client decision-making, and take and complete action on the strategic plan, reflecting on each step in a weekly journal. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Prerequisites: I will enroll up to 8 students having an interest in practical experience in IP, ranking them for enrollment purposes based on prior class work. In particular, I look to prior and current enrollment in Trademarks, Copyrights, Trademark Registration, and Business Associations, but I also consider other (similar) courses and life experience.

In this live client clinic, students will conduct interviews, research, draft documents and advise clients in a variety of intellectual property and transactional matters. This clinic regularly receives requests for services from the New Hampshire Chapter of Lawyers for the Arts and via a link on the U.S. Patent & Trademark web site for law school clinics in a student representation program (which UNH is) among other sources. Clinic clients include authors, artists, musicians, publishers, and individuals operating small businesses or non-profit organizations with transactional and adversarial issues (including TTAB cases and litigation) pertaining to copyright and trademark registration and protection (or infringement), licensing, small business transactions, as well as assistance forming and managing non-profit corporations. The clinic does not handle patent prosecution for any clients. Students are expected to devote at least 6 hours per week working in the clinic law office (8.5 in summer). Students enrolled in IP Clinic for the first time must also enroll in the two hour/week lecture component for IP Clinic. Students may take the IP & Transaction Clinic (but not the classroom component) in multiple semesters and receive academic credit. Students will be asked to demonstrate literacy in obtaining information through public and fee-based databases, through client interviews, and internal resources to properly identify client issues, analyze information, strategize options, engage in participatory model client decision-making, and take and complete action on a strategic plan.

ITTI promotes science, technology and innovation in developing countries by building capacity and capability in intellectual property (IP) management, technology transfer (TT) and patent information access, assembly and analysis. This is essential for accelerating knowledge-based, innovation-driven development; ITTI projects thereby promote the public interest by facilitating the development of knowledge, skill and abilities which will catalyze global access to essential, inclusive innovations having broad societal benefit, such as vaccines, medicines, diagnostics, green energy and agricultural technologies. Students are actively involved in ITTI programs and projects, performing patent landscape construction, forging international networks, formulating strategic plans, drafting reports, authoring publications, presenting at professional meetings, and engaging in detailed strategic discussions with key organizations such as the U.S. Departments of Energy and Commerce, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, AUTM, USPTO, the World Bank, WHO, WTO and WIPO. The Advanced ITTI Clinical Course offering typically builds on a previous semester?s work product, with greater attention to detail, professional refinement, project completion and possible publication in an academic or scientific journal. ITTI clinical projects include: 1. Working with IP/TT professionals from developing countries to formulate strategies for building capacity towards sustainable technology transfer offices (TTOs) that will serve as hubs for accelerating the development of globally-networked innovation ecosystems. 2. Contributing to training and capacity building to help establish working relationships and future collaborations with colleagues from developing countries. 3.

We look at certain constitutional doctrines as bearing on the limits of legislative authority to define conduct as criminal.
