History

The University of New Hampshire School of Law was founded in 1973, as the Franklin Pierce Law Center. In 2010, the school entered an affiliation agreement with the University of New Hampshire and became known as UNH Law. The Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property was established in 2010 to carry forth the school's long tradition of leadership in IP education.

Mission

The University of New Hampshire School of Law strives to provide its students with the best possible legal education. UNH Law is a community of scholars, oriented towards the practice of law, who teach, learn and empower others to contribute productively to a global legal system. Students from around the world with diverse experiences engage in active, practice-based learning in small, cooperative and interactive learning environments. While traditional areas of law and emerging specialties are taught, the intellectual property law curriculum, one of the broadest in the country, is continually emphasized and improved. Graduates are highly capable, confident professionals who will serve clients, employers and the public with integrity and excellence.

Location

Headquarters to most of the state’s nonprofit and charitable organizations, Concord retains its informal atmosphere and easy access to all branches of state government. It is home to the largest state legislature in the country as well as the State Capitol, the Legislative Office Building, and the United States federal courts. Although surrounded by small, picture-postcard New England towns, Concord is not isolated. The city is only one hour and 15 minutes from downtown Boston, and less than an hour from New Hampshire’s seacoast, White Mountains, and picturesque Lakes Region. New Hampshire is consistently identified as one of the most livable states in the country.
