The University of New Hampshire School of Law integrates traditional courses with the practical skills necessary for practicing law. We take you beyond the traditional course list with increasingly complex and professional work available through externships, clinics, independent studies and research. Juris Doctor students also have the opportunity to participate in Appellate Moot Court and Trial Moot Court competitions as well as edit and write for several publications, including the University of New Hampshire Law Review and IDEA®: The Intellectual Property Law Review. As a result, students gain both a thorough academic grounding and an opportunity to develop and actually use hands-on-skills.
By second semester in the first year, UNH Law students can begin shaping their future by selecting electives in particular concentrations such as public policy & social justice, business, patent law, trademarks and copyrights, and criminal law.
In addition to the JD, UNH Law also offers freestanding graduate degrees and joint JD/LLM degrees in three areas: Intellectual Property, Commerce and Technology, and International Criminal Law and Justice.
Globally recognized intellectual property studies include a Master of Laws (LLM), a Master degree and six-month Diploma program in intellectual property. These programs allow students and faculty to work with intellectual property practitioners and organizations around the world, ensuring that UNH School of Law’s courses are cutting edge. For 26 years, we have hosted the Intellectual Property Summer Institute on campus in Concord, NH. UNH Law consistently updates the technology of its library, classrooms and courtroom, preparing students to practice in today’s high-tech environment.
In addition, UNH Law offers Master of Law (LLM) and Master’s degrees in Commerce and Technology and is one of the few institutions to focus on e-Law.
UNH Law’s newest graduate program is in International Criminal Law and Justice. The Master of Law (LLM) and Master degrees can be molded to the student’s area of interest with broad offerings in criminal and social justice, commerce, and intellectual property.
