Intellectual property law program at UF benefits from gift.

Thanks to a major gift from a Gainesville-based law firm and a new certificate program, the University of Florida College of Law has joined a handful of law schools with comprehensive programs in the growing field of intellectual property law.

The firm's perpetual endowment of $137,500 will be eligible for matching state funds of $50,000 and will create the Saliwanchik, Lloyd & Saliwanchik Intellectual Property Fund to support lectures, internships and academic programs, including the college's new Intellectual Property Law Certificate Program.

"This gift will allow us to continue rapid advancement in the important field of intellectual property law, and to equip our students to meet the needs of law firms and clients throughout Florida and the nation," said law school Interim Dean Jon Mills. "We are extremely grateful to the Saliwanchik Lloyd firm for its foresight and generosity."

Patent lawyer Jeff Lloyd of the firm's Orlando office and adjunct professor at UF, said the gift is designed to keep Florida at the cutting edge of IP law.

"We are excited about augmenting the college's already strong intellectual property curriculum with advances in exciting new areas of this field," said Lloyd, who holds UF degrees in history of science and law. "We hope to assist the school in offering courses in international intellectual property law; protecting Internet technology, e-commerce, biotechnology and multimedia; and alternative dispute resolution in intellectual property disputes."
