Matthew Soper was presented an LL.M. in intellectual property law from University of New Hampsire School of Law in a May ceremony.
Noted attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies, who just argued the same-sex marriage case before the U.S. Supreme Court, addressed the graduating class.
While at UNH School of Law, Soper participated in the Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic and the Teen Court Program.
Of his experience at UNH School of Law he says, "I polished my legal skills and gained invaluable practical experience which I will be able to bring back to Colorado. Additionally, I made many new friends from around the world. It was great fun being in New Hampshire during a presidential election and meeting who's who in U.S. politics."
Soper stepped down from his position as Orchard City trustee to attend the University of New Hampshire School of Law. This degree qualifies him to sit for the bar exam, something he was unable to do without an American law degree.
A 2003 graduate of Delta High School, Soper earned his LL.M. in public international law, with a focus on maritime piracy law, and LL.B. in law at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, Great Britain, in 2009 and 2011 respectively.
Soper earned a bachelor's degree in political science and marketing from Mesa State College in 2007. He is the son of Betty and Charles Soper of Delta.blog comments powered by Disqus
