This course will provide a detailed conceptual and practical focus on the foundation of tax practice: the individual income tax return. Working in partnership with the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, students will learn how to prepare individual federal income tax returns for low-income clients and will become certified by the IRS at the advanced level. Throughout this process, students will bring theory and practice together by studying the Internal Revenue Code provisions that form the basis for the tax benefits most commonly claimed by low-income clients. Students will also learn how to interview clients, gather and investigate relevant facts, work with our VITA colleagues, and track all case activity and documents in client case management systems.

IP and Entrepreneurship for Indigenous Community Development

 

This course is held in conjunction with the World Intellectual Property Organization, the University of Hawaii, and UNH Franklin Pierce.  This main objective of this course is to understand the role of intellectual property in entrepreneurship and how lawyers can support entrepreneurs to best develop and manage intellectual property (IP) assets, integrate them into a successful business, and align the company’s IP strategy with its business strategy.  The course will apply these concepts to case studies involving indigenous and Native Hawaiian business and community development, and will discuss international, regional and national experiences, policy options and legal mechanisms available or under consideration for the intellectual property protection of traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions. 

 

The course will introduce students to different types of IP (copyright, trademark, patents, and trade secrets) and discuss their uses in companies at various stages of development. The course will cover best practices for developing, protecting, licensing, and enforcing IP rights.  The course will apply these concepts to existing indigenous – including Native Hawaiian – business and community development efforts, and introduce students to the legal mechanisms available (or not) for IP protection of traditional knowledge and cultural expression. 

 

The students will also engage in applied learning through simulations and reflection.

Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   75  
CRN: 53669
This course will introduce students to fundamental principles of U.S. copyright law. The legal protection of "creative" content as an intangible property right has been statutorily recognized in the U.S. for over 200 years. While legal rights in such works are often seen as rooted in economic rationale, the law has changed over time, in response to technological challenges and international developments. The course will therefore also provide students with an understanding of how U.S. copyright law functions and adapts in this changing environment. Students with an interest in any branch of modern intellectual property law and how it responds to modern challenges will benefit from this course. Hybrid Juris Doctor students cannot take this course for an S/U grade.
