95 percent employment rate in 2017


We prepare you for a career in law from the moment you arrive on campus, and we continue to get results that matter. At UNH Law, students can create individualized career development plans over a three-year period to maximize their post-grad employment success. Our students begin working with our outstanding career services team almost immediately after arriving on campus, and those same team members invest in each individual student, creating unique, personalized pathways to rewarding law careers. Here, you're treated like a lawyer immediately. And the results speak for themselves.
