Which Program Is Right for Me?

Whether it is an LL.M. or Master's degree, fully residential, limited residential, or online program - UNH Law has the program for you.


UNH Law has a long-standing global reputation for teaching legal professionals in an academically rigorous, supportive and collaborative learning environment in which students have personal day-to-day interactions with faculty and other students.

Traditionally, these opportunities were only available to those able to travel to New Hampshire for an extended period to participate in our residential programs.

These programs, housed in the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property, offer students some of the most extensive collections of IP courses in the country.  

Students are in residence for 2 semesters and also have the option of attending the Intellectual Property Summer Institute and being placed in an externship.

Limited Residential

Now, our Intellectual Property degrees are available in a limited residential format. In our limited residential program, students enroll for the fall semester in residence at the law school.

After completion of the fall semester, the student is then able to return home to finish the degree requirements online as either a full-time or part-time student.

This option allows for a student to experience a shorter stay in the U.S. and still complete a degree with an individualized schedule. Students have the opportunity to live and learn in the U.S. for one semester and lower their living expenses substantially by returning home to complete the degree.


For those individuals who cannot travel abroad to study due to limited time or work constraints the option of a fully online program is also available in both the International Criminal Law and Justice degree and our Intellectual Property degree (with a focus in patent law). These programs can be completed in 3 semesters and allow the student to avoid the costs associated with living expenses in the U.S. and travel to and from the U.S.

Faculty for the online programs include many of the high caliber faculty who have taught in the residential program for years and expert adjunct faculty from around the country.
