The University of New Hampshire School of Law (UNH Law) was recognized as a “Top 5” Intellectual Property Law School for 2020 by U.S. News and World Report. UNH Law joins Stanford Law School, UC Berkeley School of Law, George Washington University Law School, and New York University School of Law as members of the exclusive “Top 5” law schools for the study of intellectual property (IP) in the 2020 U.S. News & World Report rankings.

Paul R. Juhasz is honored to serve on the University of New Hampshire School of Law adjunct faculty for intellectual property management and licensing. Paul has been teaching at UNH Law since 2015.

As put forward by Paul, “There are a lot of legal issues impacting technology today.  Our school educates students in a way that helps them understand and address these issues for clients in the bigger picture.  It is not just about counseling clients in the moment.  It is about providing clients with comprehensive counseling.  In the intellectual property law program at UNH Law, that includes helping students develop a working knowledge that allows them to identify pre-existing IP as well as IP that a company may need to create; define the relationship of that IP to other assets, how that IP fits into the company business plan, and strategies for using that IP to advance the business mission; understand how to create, harvest, protect, monetize, and litigate that IP in a way that exceeds company objectives; and understand how to develop and manage client relationships to do all of the above and everything else. That is what the future of technology law is about and our school does that.”

In the words of Dean Megan Carpenter, “Our school has always been at the forefront of how law can shape technological progress and vice-versa. Our approach to teaching is holistic.  Our students learn how theory and practice complement one another and, together, prove invaluable in legal careers. Our outstanding teaching is a key reason why our graduates now work in more than 80 countries and at the highest levels of legal practice, business and government.”  https://www.unh.edu/unhtoday/2019/03/unh-law-among-top-5-intellectual-property

UNH Law has been ranked in the top 10 for IP nationwide every year since U.S. News & World Report began ranking IP programs 28 years ago. UNH Law has been a pioneer in the study of IP law since the law school’s founding as the Franklin Pierce Law Center 46 years ago.
