After starting to expand the IP courses at Akron Law when an adjunct, and getting then Dean Aynes to move forward with an emphasis on IP, I was excited about the possibility of having Akron Law become a leader in IP education. As the Inventors Hall of Fame came to Akron, having this expertise seemed a natural fit, and I wanted to be involved.
To have Akron Law become nationally and internationally recognized as a leader in IP education, and to increase the opportunities for students to become leaders in IP practice and policy. I also want to help create a Regional Innovation Institute that fosters innovation and a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving, creativity and education.
The IP offerings are significant, and opportunities to get involved in IP related activities and publications are plentiful. The IP Council, with a number of IP leaders contributing ideas and providing access to students is great.
The variety of interesting technologies and people we interact with. Working with people/companies dreams.
Get involved and get experience any way you can.
