New Program Brings Students, Alumni Together City By City

The University of New Hampshire School of Law’s new Great American Cities program, which launched this semester, has brought several alumni back to the school to discuss with students what it's like to live and work in selected destination cities around the country.

This week, the focus was on Philadelphia: Christopher I. Halliday, JD/MIP '99, a partner at Morgan Lewis and John Gregory Jr., JD '88, general counsel for Streamlight Inc., talked with students over lunch and later during individualized interviews. Christiane Schuman Campbell, JD/MIP '05, an associate at Duane Morris LLP, participated in the discussion via Skype from her office in Philadelphia.

“The purpose of the Great American Cities Program is to connect alumni with the school and current students, and to connect our students with the broad range of geographic and career options open to them,” says Donna Miller, UNH Law’s assistant dean for Career Services.

The program is co-sponsored by the school’s Career Services and Institutional Advancement Departments. The first event, held in January, featured the city of Boston and two graduates who work in the city: Betsy Burkhard, ’06, an associate at Holland & Knight, and Austin Wang ’06, who works in-house at Procter and Gamble.

The next Great American Cities event will take place early in the fall semester.
