LBS 932 (1ON) - Personal Income Taxation

This course is an introductory course to federal taxation. We will cover a range of topics including: Income and deductions, accounting methods, transactions resulting in capital gain, deferral of tax, and choice of the taxable person. In essence, this course is about the Internal Revenue Code (Title 26 of the United States Code) and related Regulations promulgated by the United States Treasury Department. The course has three fundamental objectives. 1. Statutory Analysis. This course should improve your ability to comprehend and apply complex statutes and regulations. Tax laws change every year, and this skill will help you regardless of what field you practice in. 2. Income Tax Policy and Evaluation. The course is also designed to provide a basic understanding of federal tax policy. Sometimes, if we know the why behind a code section, it helps us to understand how or what the code section is trying to do. In addition, the Internal Revenue Code is also used to motivate certain behaviors (buying a home, saving money, investing in certain types of real estate). It is helpful to examine whether those behaviors should be legitimized and, if so, whether the Code effectively promotes the desired behaviors. 3. Overview of Tax Issues in Other Practice Areas. We will also address how the tax law affects other areas of the law, including: family law, litigation, business, health and medicine and real property (among others). Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Course format: problem-based. This course is recommended for taking the bar exam. Grading: final exam, 60%; midterm exam, 30%; class prep. and participation, 10%. This course may be taken for an S/U grade.

Class Size:   2  
CRN: 70352
The Advanced IP & Transaction Clinic will continue the clinical component of the (basic) IP & Transaction Clinic. Students taking the Advanced IP & Transaction Clinic will take on more challenging projects, will assist with supervision of basic IP & Transaction Clinic students, and will gain the proficiency to more quickly and independently bring strategic plans for client objectives to conclusion. In addition to enhancing and solidifying the knowledge, skills, and values the students attained in the basic Intellectual Property & Transaction Clinic, students taking the Advanced IP & Transaction Clinic will be expected to develop a mastery of trademark and copyright prosecution that can be more independently applied in developing strategic IP protection and management schemes, will be expected to be more proficient in start-up law and transactional practice sufficient to independently design strategic plans for clients, and to routinely incorporate the values of sound legal judgment and ethics in coming to client solutions. As with the basic IP & Transaction Clinic, the Advanced IP & Transaction Clinic will incorporate very frequent usage of the Patent and Trademark and Copyright Office websites to conduct legal research, factual research, and prepare and submit filings, as well as frequent use of the USPQ and secondary sources for legal research. Advanced IP & Transaction Clinic students do not take a companion lawyering course; only the clinic component may be taken for credit, and that is because real-life client cases generate a continually new and changing curriculum. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Prerequisites: IP & Transaction Clinic & Class. Instructor permission required to enroll. Course enrollment is limited to 4 students. Course format: clinic. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course cannot be taken for an S/U grade.

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. Email me (Ashlyn.Lembree@Law.UNH.edu) for questions/clarification/submission of additional information beyond the above 4 courses.. Corequisites: See prerequisites.

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.

LCR 914 (1ON) - CyberCrime

CRN: 70358
As society becomes more dependent on data and networks to operate our businesses, government, national defense and other critical functions, the risks posed by hacking, `malware? and cyberattacks escalate. Although cybercrimes can be analogized to more traditional criminal law violations, the technology that offenders employ is very new, making hackers more elusive and the damage they cause often more widespread. Cybercrime examines both new and traditional laws that govern damage caused to or through networks, especially the Internet. With good preparation, good class attendance and constructive participation, students will gain the following: 1. an intermediate technical understanding of cyberattacks; 2. knowledge of conduct that is prohibited under security and privacy laws; and 3. an ability to critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of security laws and relevant case law. Cybercrime will provide students with a competitive advantage for practicing law in this cutting-edge field.

CRN: 70359
Weapons and drug trafficking are among the largest underground industries in the world. Generating hundreds of billions of dollars in annual revenue, and spawning a global industry of money laundering, trafficking has profound effects not only in the developing world but also in the well-established economies of Europe, Asia and North America. Trafficking leads also to a series of collateral social issues inclduding increased crime rates, profound societal effects and costs, rampant public corruption and large-scale funding of terrorist activities. This course familiarizes students with the origins and present state of international trafficking in weapons and drugs and the money laundering practices used to conceal it from detection. It includes an examination of how trafficking is conducted on a global scale, what efforts have been undertaken to combat it, and what the international community is doing to address the many complex issues involved. International standards and cross-cultural obstacles are examined, as are political implications. The course will examine the approaches to these problems used in countries that have a strong interest or participation in trafficking. In addition, international best practices and standards will be critically assessed.
