UNH Law named a top 100 law school in magazine’s rankings
CONCORD — For the first time, the University of New Hampshire School of Law was named among the nation's top 100 law schools, while also remaining in the top 10 for Intellectual Property law in rankings by U.S. News & World Report.
In the law school ranking released today by U.. News & World Report in the 2015 edition of America's Best Graduate Schools, UNH Law moved up 26 positions to No. 93 in and, for the 23rd straight year, was named a top 10 law school for Intellectual Property law, placing ninth in the country.
Over the past two years, UNH Law has moved up a combined 49 spots, a rise unmatched by any other law school.
“Our improvement in the rankings is consistent with the progress we are making at UNH Law, such as admitting highly-qualified students and continuously strengthening our employment and bar passage efforts,” said Dean John Broderick. “In this time of upheaval in legal education, the top-notch, hands-on training for which we have long been known is increasingly valued.”
In an interview with the National Law Journal, Broderick noted, "We’ve brought in our best two classes over the past two years. I’m proud of what we’re doing on the ground, and our new relationship with the University (of New Hampshire) certainly hasn’t hurt."
UNH Law continues the tradition of Franklin Pierce Law Center of being ranked among the nation's top IP schools every year since specialty law school rankings began in 1992.
“With the addition of the Sports & Entertainment Law Institute last year, the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property continues to forge new ground with innovative teaching and research,” said Broderick. “Generations of faculty, students, and alumni have built the reputation of the IP Center as one of the world’s foremost places for the study of IP law.”
