Clinic publishes case studies of Native American mascot changes

WCL Glushko-Samuelson IP Clinic

Today the Glushko-Samuelson Intellectual Property Clinic at American University Washington College of Law is publishing a collection of case studies showing how four universities successfully retired and replaced mascots that play on Native American stereotypes. The studies, which examine mascot changes at Dartmouth College, Stanford University, University of Oklahoma, and Syracuse University, were prepared by student attorneys in the clinic during the 2012-2013 school year. These studies, which show how communities have ultimately embraced this change, may be of help to the Washington football team as it considers its options following the cancellation of its trademark.
