Contracts and intellectual property law scholar Raymond T. Nimmer has been tapped to serve as interim dean at the University of Houston Law Center. It's the second time around for Nimmer, who is the school's Leonard Childs Professor of Law and co-director of its Intellectual Property and Information Law Institute. He previously served as interim dean from 1993-95.
Nimmer, a leading expert on e-commerce and technology licensing, is coming off a stint as a Fulbright Distinguished Chair in International Commercial Law at the Catholic University of Lisbon, Portugal. Among his recent books are Licensing of Information Assets: Cases and Materials (2005); Modern Licensing Law (with Dodd, 2005); and The Law of Electronic Commercial Transactions (with Towle, 2003).
