UNHInnovation (UNHI) has worked with the UNH School of Law since 2010 to bring law school student interns into our office to gain technology transfer experience within a higher education setting.
This year, we are very pleased to welcome Cassie Simmons and Andrew Schmid to the office. Andrew and Cassie started on June 2, 2014 and will work with us over the course of the next year. Both interns have just completed their 1L year (first year of law school).
Before beginning my internship with UNH Innovation (formerly the Office for Research Partnerships and Commercialization), I didn’t really have a good understanding of how business and other entities managed and leveraged their intellectual property. I did realize however, that if I wanted to find a position in house at a company after I graduated I would need to learn. This is where the internship came in. Because of the unique environment that the ORPC operates in, I have been able to gain experience in a variety of areas that I likely would not have been able to find anywhere else.
The most rewarding endeavors are those that are the most challenging. When I left my job to attend one of the premier intellectual property law schools in the nation, University of New Hampshire School of Law (UNH Law), I had no idea just how rewarding – and challenging – the experience would be.
The ORPC is delighted to welcome our newest class of interns from the UNH School of Law!
Chris Leming and Nate Blase started in the office on June 3, 2013 and will be working with us throughout the summer and the next academic year. Nate and Chris just recently completed their 1L year of law school and bring a terrific variety of experiences to the ORPC.
