Assistant for Prof. Leach

Eric Leach began his career in music, performing as a professional musician and working in technical support at electronic music companies such as Roland, Alesis, and Samick. In 2000, Leach graduated magna cum laude from Whittier Law School in the top 5% of his class, serving as Executive Editor for law review for two years after receiving the Law Review Outstanding Candidate Award. He also participated in the Moot Court Honors Board, was a founding member of the Intellectual Property Law Society, and received American Jurisprudence/CALI Awards for the highest grade in five classes.

Upon graduation, Professor Leach practiced primarily as a business law litigator, with an emphasis on intellectual property, but also practiced transactional work, including trademark prosecution and licensing agreements. He went on to teach at Whittier Law School, and then, the University of Illinois College of Law. Leach also tutored at-risk students and supervised numerous independent studies projects at both of the aforementioned institutions. During the summer of 2009, Leach taught a short-semester course in International Intellectual Property at the University of Toulouse in Toulouse, France. At Ave Maria School of Law, Professor Leach taught Research, Writing and Advocacy I and II.
