Academic Preparation & Support
The University of New Hampshire School of Law offers a broad range of public interest courses taught by a diverse faculty with strong social justice backgrounds. The goal is to equip students with the skills necessary to use their legal education to advance social justice.
The Social Justice Institute (SJI) has designed curricular plans for students preparing for careers in public interest law and social justice advocacy in the following areas:
- Criminal Law
- Indigent Legal Services
- Civil Rights & Civil Liberties
- Public Interest in Private Practice
- Intellectual Property in the Public Interest
- International Human Rights
These practice areas are designed to prepare students in fields of greatest relevance to the under-represented and most vulnerable in our communities.
