The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service provides financial, curricular, and experiential support to UNH Franklin Pierce law students pursuing public service and public-interest lawyering.
The Center awards scholarships to students who have an interest in public-service law, and stipends to those who perform full-time pro bono work at government agencies and non-profits in the summer.
We also serve as a hub for public discourse on the policies and events shaping society today: civic engagement and education, fiscal responsibility, legislative oversight with responsible stewardship, and putting aside partisanship to confront and address the problems facing our democracy and world.
The Center brings policy leaders, public servants, and journalists to campus so that students and the greater Concord community can hear directly from, and converse with, luminaries and thought leaders in our state and nation.
Sen. Warren B. Rudman
The Center is named for Warren B. Rudman, a U.S. Senator from New Hampshire, who was widely admired for his integrity and willingness to work with politicians across the aisle in order to advance the public interest.
In lending his name to the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service, Senator Rudman stated that he could “think of no greater mission than to train our next generation of leaders to seek justice, serve their country, and work together for the common good.”
He passed away in November 2012, just months before the Center opened in April 2013.
