Students perform patentability searches and draft patentability opinions relating to the scope of protection a client might be able to receive if it filed a patent application; in appropriate situations, the student will then prepare and file provisional and non-provisional utility applications and design applications. Students also conduct trademark clearance searches, prepare written clearance opinions, and file trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). The clinic participates in the USPTO's Law School Clinic Certification Program, giving students limited recognition to practice before the office while they are in the clinic. In addition, students consult with clients on copyright issues and file copyright registrations with the U.S. Copyright Office. Students also counsel clients on the protection of confidential and trade secret information, and they draft nondisclosure agreements and IP licenses.
Students will also provide clients with a range of corporate and business law services, including assistance with business entity selection and formation, drafting charter documents, and preparing founder and shareholder agreements. The clinic will assist with regulatory matters, obtaining business permits, and business operation issues (e.g., drafting and reviewing service contracts, manufacturing agreements, and strategic partnerships). For companies interested in seeking outside investment, the IPEC will review term sheets and advise clients on financing arrangements. The clinic may also provide counseling on tax implications of various actions and may provide assistance with obtaining non-profit or benefit status.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
