UHLC presented with Texas bar trademark award for defending school’s brand in naming dispute
The University of Houston Law Center was honored recently with the inaugural State Bar of Texas IP Section Annual Trademark Award for its defense of the school’s brand after South Texas College of Law announced plans to change its name to Houston College of Law.
“I am very thankful that the Texas Bar recognized the Law Center for protecting its name and brand,” said Dean Leonard M. Baynes "The case presented important and novel legal issues. The Law Center community is deeply grateful for the expert legal representation by UH General Counsel Dona Cornell and UHLC alumni Tony Buzbee and Al Deaver. Our success is solely attributable to their outstanding lawyering and advocacy. "
