Our groundbreaking curriculum and experiential learning opportunities allow you to personalize your legal education.

Here, you will shape your own experiences and graduate with practice-ready skills.

Practice-Driven Legal Education for the 21st Century

As a graduate student at UNH Franklin Pierce, you can map out your own path, collaborating with your advisor to determine the best courses and experiential learning opportunities. Our low student-to-faculty ratio fosters mentorship, and our community-oriented culture ensures you will have a fulfilling (and fun!) law school experience. 

We were founded to train lawyers for the information age. That was in 1973 — we were a little ahead of our time.  

And we continue to be – our practice-oriented approach includes a faculty of accomplished attorneys who bring extensive practical experience into the classroom and our celebrated clinical programs afford our students real-world experience with organizations around the world.

Our curriculum is not one-size-fits-all. Our students’ experiences are designed to support long-term success in the legal field. Our graduate degree programs and experiential learning opportunities are robust and intentional. We succeed when our students succeed. 

We prepare you for your career from the moment you arrive on campus, and we continue to get results that matter. In addition to our array of experiential learning options that allow you to gain critical experience in real-world legal settings, UNH Franklin Pierce students can create individualized career development plans to maximize their post-grad employment success. Our students begin working with our outstanding career services team immediately after arriving on campus, and those same team members invest in each individual student, creating unique, personalized pathways to rewarding careers.
