UNH Law’s Rudman Center Announces Leadership Transition

UNH Law’s Rudman Center Announces Leadership Transition

Professor John Greabe Named New Director

The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy will be led, starting April 1, by Professor John Greabe, a constitutional law scholar who has been on the UNH Law faculty since 2010. He replaces Professor Erin Corcoran who will be returning to full-time teaching and research.


“We’re extremely fortunate to announce that John will be taking the helm of the Rudman Center,” said John Broderick, dean of UNH Law. “His scholarly background and extensive experience in the federal court system will be immensely valuable both to our students and for expanding the reach of the Rudman Center into new areas of public policy and debate.”

Before joining UNH Law, Greabe served as law clerk to Judges Jeffrey R. Howard, Norman H. Stahl, and Hugh H. Bownes of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. He also served as law clerk to United States District Court Judges Paul J. Barbadoro and W. Arthur Garrity, Jr., and to Magistrate Judge James R. Muirhead.

His scholarly work focuses on constitutional remedies, the First Amendment, and election law.

“I’m thrilled to be named the director of the Rudman Center,” said Greabe. “I’ve been closely watching its progress over the past several years and I’m excited to be taking over at this opportune time, following on the great work of Erin Corcoran.”

Erin Corcoran Corcoran became director of UNH Law’s Social Justice Institute in 2009 and took over the leadership of the Rudman Center as it was publicly launched in 2013. Among the many accomplishments of her tenure were several major conferences on topics such as Ending Domestic & Sexual Violence, Leadership and Fiscal Responsibility, and Combating Human Trafficking. Corcoran will continue teaching and will remain involved with the Rudman Center.

“I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to help launch the Rudman Center, and proud of all we’ve accomplished over the past several years,” said Corcoran. “I step aside knowing that John Greabe will be a great addition to the Rudman Center.”

“I can’t thank Erin enough for her tireless work on behalf of launching the Rudman Center,” added Broderick. “Her commitment to increasing access to justice coupled with her experience in the public policy arena shaped the vision for what the Rudman Center has become, while her administrative talents created a terrific foundation upon which to build.”

The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire School of Law provides scholarship, training, and opportunity for a new generation of leaders who cherish public service. The Rudman Center and its programs also serve as a living monument to Senator Rudman and the other leaders of his political generation whose values and examples it seeks to foster, transmit and preserve.
