Professor Vorenberg worked for six years as an Assistant District Attorney in New York City. After moving to New Hampshire, she worked as an Assistant Attorney General for three years before coming to UNH Law where she worked jointly with the New Hampshire Public Defender Program to start the Criminal Practice Clinic.

She left the Clinic in 1997, and the next year began teaching in the Legal Skills Program. In 2011, she was appointed to direct the Legal Writing Program.

"The University of New Hampshire School of Law is a great place to teach. The students have truly diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our small classes allow us to get to know our students well, which makes for a warm and supportive atmosphere."
