Some interesting facts about UNH Law School

The University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law offers LLM, master’s degree, and diploma certificate programs for lawyers and non-lawyers in three specialized areas of the law: Intellectual Property, Commerce and Technology, and International Criminal Law and Justice.

Launched in the fall of 2010, UNH Law’s Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property is home to one of the nation’s most highly regarded IP programs, a hallmark of the school since it was founded in 1973. UNH Law has received national recognition for the study of IP law for 25 consecutive years. In building relationships with leaders in industry and government around the world, the Franklin Pierce Center for IP has established itself as a global hub with rich and varied resources—including the only academic IP library in the United States. The Franklin Pierce Center for IP faculty, students, researchers, and partners work at the intersection of law, business, and technology, and students graduate with the skills and knowledge necessary to impact innovation in the ever-evolving world of IP.

The center offers one of the most extensive selections of intellectual property courses in the country, exposing students to a wide range of cutting-edge IP issues. Ahead of the curve in integrating intellectual property studies into legal education, the center focuses on offering students practical experience that will prepare them to succeed immediately in legal careers anywhere in the world—and, with a global network of successful alumni connected to the Franklin Pierce tradition, students have access to IP professionals in more than 80 countries.

Practice-based learning is foundational to a UNH Law education. We have a faculty of top IP professors with extensive practice experience who prepare students for real-world situations. Our IP professors are also renowned for their scholarship and research, and are genuine mentors who teach courses designed to foster engagement. Our comfortable student-to-faculty ratio promotes campus-wide collaboration.

its been 7 days since i sent my letter, my confirmation was :should hear bakc within a week" should i ive it another 7 days before I follow up?
lopl andn they answwered
30k to now 34 k
unfortunately Michigan State raised it to 40k.. so its 12k TOTAL for law school there and 14k/year here., Tough choice. they have w renown IP{ program
i dont know what to do
That IS a tough choice. Are you able to visit any campuses?
i will visit NH next friday but i cant see michigan until april 4 and my scholarship here has a April 1 deadline to accept
If im not blown away with their IP program and job numbers i am going to take michigan. I think i would get a good job in the boston area but there is SO much competition. Theres like 4 elite law schools in boston
Well, I hope that your trip is productive and gives you the answer you need (either way!)
You'd be surprised, Boston isn't really a "Law City" and a would bet the majority of those elite law school grads move to a different city
I would back that up as well. Unless they're in tech/start-up, Boston is not as attractive as some other cities.
thanks! But still MSU is 4k/year UNH is 15/k currently and according to lawschooltransparency UNH rasies tuition by 1k each year. I would need something very impressive for 4x the cost. I would MUCH rather live in NH. I love the politics of the region but money :/. Housing near UNH is much more than i thought. I would definitely need roommates
Yes, the northeast isn't cheap. How was your trip?
Has anyone had any luck negotiating scholarships? How exactly do you go about starting said negotiation?
yeah, they raised mine twice. Initial 31 thousand to 35. I declined and the director reached out to me and said essentiall what is your number. I told them about michigan state and they matched 40k but UNH is 5k more expensive AND they rage quit from the US News Rankings so i declined and am attending Michigan State
this is a public school their tuition should not be this expensive. They seem to only care about intellectual property
It's not the school. We have no sales or income tax, and even the rest of UNH/public college system is woefully underfunded. It's a whole thing. https://nhfpi.org/blog/public-higher-education-funding-in-new-hampshire-trails-all-other-states-despite-recent-increases/
It does suck.
god i need to move to New Hampshire after law school
sounds like heaven
Until they have to charge the proverbial arm and leg for tuition. :)
