UNH Law's Sports and Entertainment Law Institute

Noted sports law expert Michael McCann has joined the University of New Hampshire School of Law and launched a new Sports and Entertainment Law Institute. McCann, who was a visiting professor at UNH Law during the 2012-13 academic year, is now professor of law and director of the Sports and Entertainment Law Institute.

The Sports and Entertainment Law Institute provides opportunities for students who demonstrate a talent and passion for sports and entertainment law with core skills in these practice areas and opportunities for thoughtful discussion of contemporary legal issues in the field.

The Institute helps students gain real-world skills to obtain, and succeed in, careers in sports and entertainment law. Students will have the opportunity to enroll in a wide-range of core and supporting courses.

 

I'm thrilled to join a school which is deservedly renowned for its intellectual property law program. To launch a sports and entertainment law institute as part of this program is a fantastic opportunity. I can't wait to work with students in developing hands-on skills in sports and entertainment law, and helping them enter those fields.

The Sports & Entertainment Law Institute will be part of UNH Law's Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property, which is consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the nation's best intellectual property law programs.

 

The Sports and Entertainment Law Institute is a great pairing with our historic strengths in trademark and copyright law. And we are very fortunate to have Michael McCann, one of the most exciting legal scholars in the country, leading the way.
