University of New Hampshire updates law school name to Franklin Pierce
The University of New Hampshire School of Law has changed its name to become the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law or the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law.
Prior to joining the University of New Hampshire, the law school was known as the Franklin Pierce Law Center, and this name update has been done in recognition of the prestige the Franklin Pierce name carries in the global intellectual property community.
UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law Dean Megan Carpenter explains, “This expansion of the law school name blends the best of the past, present and future. It restores a name of high value in the intellectual property community while preserving the law school’s important association to UNH and the state of New Hampshire. The Franklin Pierce name is considered the gold standard for intellectual property internationally. We’re confident welcoming Franklin Pierce back into our name will build new bridges globally as well as enhance relationships with our alumni.”
UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law is consistently ranked in the Top 100 overall by US News and World Report and is also ranked in the Top 5 for Intellectual Property Law, joining other prestigious schools including Stanford Law School, UC Berkeley School of Law and New York University School of Law. It is known for innovation in legal education, including in social justice, health law and policy, and sports.
