Roberts is an Assistant Professor of Law and is teaching courses in the law school’s IP curriculum. She is also an affiliated fellow of the Yale Information Society Project.

I’m thrilled about this opportunity to collaborate with the excellent faculty members, students, and alumni connected with the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property.

With 40 years of IP leadership to build on, UNH Law has a very bright future training the next generation of IP leaders.
