A Community of Students and Scholars
The University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law’s practice-based approach to legal education, along with its extensive and innovative curriculum, ensures that students graduate ready to become leaders in their field.
For example, the International Technology Transfer Institute gives students hands-on learning and the opportunity to contribute to scientific breakthroughs around the world while collaborating with organizations such as the World Bank, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the United States Department of Commerce, and the World Health Organization. Students in the Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic help clients with business ventures, including IP strategy and execution, business transactions, and licensing.
LL.M. and Master’s students are trained in the techniques of legal writing and research as practiced in the US, and have full access to the school’s Academic Success Program, including an opportunity to take a preliminary Bar exam – the test all US attorneys must pass to practice – and a dedicated faculty member who supports preparation for the legal classroom and for the Bar exam.
UNH Franklin Pierce’s small class sizes ensure LL.M. and Master’s students have access to their professors, and faculty get to know every student in their classes. Those bonds create an exceptional academic experience and ensure LL.M. students can create strong social and professional networks that thrive well beyond graduation.
Upon graduation, students join a global network of alumni from more than 80 countries who are leading IP law and policy in countries like Argentina, Nigeria, and Taiwan, as well as for global tech giants, top law firms, and national IP offices.
