On December 4, 2014, the UNC Law Faculty voted to approve the establishment of a new clinic, the Intellectual Property Clinic, for 2015-16. The general subject matter of the clinic will be trademark and copyright practice. The two-semester, six-credit clinic will train students to be creative and effective advocates on behalf of clients who need to protect the words, symbols, names, images or designs that allow customers to easily identify and authenticate the source of a service or product. Much of the clinic’s work will involve representing independent non-profits, educational institutions, and small businesses before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
