Peter T. Foley brought Sports Law to UNH Law in 1992, making what was then Franklin Pierce Law Center one of the few leading IP law schools to also offer students a sports law option. He has regularly taught both professional and amateur related sports law courses at UNH Law over the past 20 years and will be teaching Intellectual Property Issues in Sports & Entertainment Law in the Spring of 2015.
He has commented on sports law and business issues for a number of publications including The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Baseball America and has written and recorded numerous radio commentary pieces for Public Radio International’s Marketplace as well as for Christian Science Monitor Radio. In years past, he has also written and produced sports humor pieces for New Hampshire Public Radio as well as hosted, along with two of his brothers, The Sports Buzz, a sports radio talk show that brought a not-so-serious perspective to the Boston sports scene.
Peter is an honors graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center and has practiced law in New Hampshire, first as a Senior Assistant Attorney General and now as a solo practitioner, since relocating here from Massachusetts in 1981.
