On behalf of clients we prosecute and defend cases involving identity theft, unfair trade practices, mortgage foreclosure defense, predatory lending, auto fraud, bankruptcy, unfair sales practices, and debt collection defense.

We appear in District, Superior, Federal and Bankruptcy courts. The clinic is operated as a small law firm to familiarize students with many of the practice management systems used by firms throughout the country, including calendaring, conflicts checking, time and billing, word processing, case management and specialized practice software.

CRN: 70297
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. Course enrollment is limited to 8 students. Course format: lecture. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course cannot be taken for an S/U grade.

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.
