Say About Their UNH Law Experience
• Franklin Pierce gave me an edge in a tough job market in Indonesia where other lawyers had more IP experience. It gave instant name recognition since a few pioneers of IP in Indonesia were graduates.
• Even now, when talking with international or local IP practitioners there is a sense of pride when talking about my alma mater. The school has a family like feel to it with its smaller size. You are not simply another number like at a big university.

• The Franklin Pierce Center for IP gave me exciting opportunities and challenges, expanded my horizons, and had a profound impact on my future.
• I am much better prepared to handle my day to day assignment at the law firm I am working with. Moreover the master degree helped me to transition from an in-house counsel to a patent agent in a law firm.
• The best part about the school was that most of the professors have loads of real life experience in their fields by virtue of working for a law firm or managing the IP department of large corporations. The patent courses, like Patent Law and IP Management, prepare you to be ready for any kind of job opportunity be it as in-house or in a law firm.
