For the UH Manoa 2012 Homecoming Lecture, Professor Danielle M. Conway of the William S. Richardson Law School will explore the sometimes contradictory ways that government uses procurement to support small business when she gives the UH Manoa 2012 Homecoming Lecture titled, “Small Business and Collateral Policies in Government Procurement.”

Conway, an authority on intellectual property law, is the Michael J. Marks Distinguished Professor of Business Law. Her inaugural Michael Marks lecture will be at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, October 12, in the Moot Courtroom at the Law School. The lecture will be followed by refreshments, and then a Wahine women’s volleyball game at 7 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center with UH vs. Cal State Northridge.
In her lecture, Conway will scrutinize how governments use procurement policies, laws and regulations focused on the acquisition of intellectual property, while balancing the constant pressure for open and fair competition. She will also explore government use of collateral policies and the conflicts that may be thereby generated.
Conway is the Director of the Hawaii Procurement Institute, and is a Regents’ Medalist for Excellence in Teaching. She was named the Law School’s Outstanding Professor of the Year in 2003. She specializes in Intellectual Property Law, Licensing Intellectual Property, International Intellectual Property Law, Internet Law & Policy, and Government Contract Law.
She received her BS from New York University, her JD cum laude from Howard University School of Law, and her LLM from George Washington University School of Law.
