The University of New Hampshire School of Law prepares students for the real world, both inside the classroom and out. Since its creation, the school has been a pioneer in practice-ready education, helping to create future lawyers who are more than just book smart. In addition to the wealth of resources students will find in the Career Services Office, UNH Law offers a variety of ways for students to develop their legal skills.

Our clinical programs allow second- and third-year students to represent clients in actual cases in several practice areas, including immigration law, criminal law, mediation and intellectual property law. Additionally, UNH Law’s robust legal residency program allows students to spend a semester working with experienced lawyers in all types of legal settings. Ninety-seven percent of the class of 2015 joined a clinic or completed a legal residency before graduating.
