It explains financing intellectual property assets, including new developments in UCC Article 9, emphasizes modern law developments, and includes an extensive discussion of licensing in digital and online industries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dorothy Evensen, Carla D. Pratt. The end of the pipeline : a journey of recognition for African Americans entering the legal profession. Carolina Academic Press, c2011.

KF299.A35E94 2011

 

This book contains a foreword written by Professor Michael Olivas.  The book addresses how some African-American attorneys, recently admitted to the bar, successfully navigated what research suggests is a very precarious pipeline to the legal profession.  The response to this question entailed a journey that spanned some three years, over fifty informants, and a dozen or so researchers and scholars who study the intersections of education, race, and efforts to achieve social equity.
