UNH Law Once Again in Top 10 IP Law Schools

Many readers of IPWatchdog.com know that I hold two degrees from the former FPLC, both my Juris Doctor and my Master of Laws in intellectual property, and continue to have a special place in my heart for the institution and the people affiliated with the institution. It is good to see that the UNH School of Law continues the tradition of Franklin Pierce Law Center. UNH-FPLC has been ranked each and every year since U.S. News began their specialty law school rankings began in 1992.

UNH Law Honors Newman, Gajarsa Named Distinguished Jurist

UNH School of Law Opens Franklin Pierce Center for IP

Indeed, the new Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property at the University of New Hampshire School of Law will formally open with a bang! Chief Judge Randall Rader of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will deliver remarks at a dinner hosted by UNH Law on Friday, September 30, 2011, and will participate in a Judge’s panel on Saturday, October 1, 2011. Rounding out the Judges’ panel will be Judge Pauline Newman and Judge Arthur Gajarsa, both also of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Three Federal Circuit Judges at the opening event for the new IP Center is a great way to start.
