Now Playing at the IP Mall : The UNH Law Sports Law Repository

The UNH Law Sports Law Repository was a collaborative effort between the IP Mall and Professor Michael McCann, Director of the UNH Law Sports Law Institute. Prof. McCann approached me with the idea of offering unique sports law related content, not on the web as well as hosting other content for a "one stop shop" for sports lawyers and professionals. The site was under development for a year with the assistance of Gradaute Programs student Razan Taha.

CONCORD – The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Law and the Library of Congress’s Law Library have selected Concord and UNH Law as a location on the national tour of a travelling exhibition honoring the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, the charter sealed by King John of England that is acknowledged as the basis for the rule of law in modern democracies.



Now Playing at the IP Mall : The Secret PIPA Papers

Today at the IP Mall, the secret thirty five year paper collection of the Pacific Intellectual Property Association (PIPA) is revealed. Emeritus Professor Karl Jorda always taught that licensing negotiations could only be successful if relationships were built with Asian negotiators. They held secrets until they trusted the U.S. licensing professionals and lawyers.

Marking Passages, Preserving the Past : Throwback Thursdays - Some Old Black-and-Whites

On this installment of Throwback Thursdays, we feature a few photos from different eras of the law school.  The first two are the most interesting, I think.  One shows White Park, circa early 1900's, when the Pond was still split in two.  This photo is actually pretty rare; it was taken and used in a postcard which states "Published exclusively for Nelson's Five Cent Store".  If anyone has any information on this bygone establishment, we'd be happy to hear about it.  The other photo will appeal to long-timers, alumni, faculty, staff and students alike.  It show

Marking Passages, Preserving the Past : Throwback Thursdays - In the Beginning Was the Barn . . .

Greetings All, and Happy Thursday!  We will slowly work our way forward in time, but here are a few more nuggets from the very early days of Franklin Pierce Law Center (now the University of New Hampshire School of Law). Most interesting, I think, is the bottommost photo, showing a busy hallway between classes.  What you are looking at is now the entrance to the library on the main floor!  A lot of renovations between then and now.  Times may change, but the spirit of UNH Law remains the same (now even higher in the rankings as a top 100 law school).  Slante!

Thousands of eBooks Added to Library Catalog

Thousands of new eBooks are now available to our community thanks to the Library's continued cooperation with the larger UNH system. These titles, mostly non-legal subjects, are integrated into the catalog directly. Information on accessing eBooks and other databases off campus is available here

Now Playing at the IP Mall : Bayh Dole Research & History Central

Bayh Dole Central was created several years ago I was approached by Visting Professor Karen Hersey who had been longtime IP Counsel for MIT. It was the 30th anniversay of the Bayh Dole Act, described below. She requested the IP Mall to create a site to commemorate the Act and the founding fathers. These men would be but a footnote in history at best.
