Your Law Career Starts Now

We prepare you for a career in law from the moment you arrive on campus. UNH Law ranks sixth among the 15 New England law schools for full-time, permanent bar passage required for employment. What's more, New Hampshire was the first state in the Northeast to adopt the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE), allowing our graduates to apply for admission in more than a dozen other UBE jurisdictions, including New York and Colorado.

UNH Law's career services team provides advice and resources beginning in your first semester. The professionals in the career services office provide opportunities to practice networking skills and, in addition to individual guidance, offer workshops on writing an effective cover letter and resume, and professional coaching. Students also have the opportunity to meet informally with practicing attorneys.
