Univ. of New Hampshire School of Law in Concord, N.H. (formerly Franklin Pierce) is looking to hire a new full-time professor of patent prosecution practice. As many patent attorneys know, patent prosecution is already a major component of UNH’s patent law program.
“The person who is hired for this position must be able to teach and continue to develop a program of instruction that provides students with the skills needed to prosecute patent applications, including claims drafting and patent application preparation and procedures. The course includes a weekly lecture component that is given by the patent prosecution professor and small sections with practicing patent attorneys that are managed by the patent prosecution professor. By the end of this two-semester program, students will have drafted a complete patent specification and claims, responded to various USPTO Office Actions, and learned to prepare additional documents for filing with the USPTO.”
UNH is also willing to accommodate individuals interested in combining teaching responsibilities with an ongoing law practice or other professional obligation.
