The University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law has excelled in the 2022 US News & World Report rankings, achieving the fourth spot for best intellectual property programs nationwide.

UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law also features in the top 100 law schools, ranking 88th overall.
Speaking of this recent achievement, Dean Megan Carpenter explains, “We had an incredibly successful year at the law school, despite the challenges we all faced.” She continues, “In addition to enrolling our largest class in the history of the school, we entered our second year offering our first-of-its-kind Hybrid Juris Doctor program in Intellectual Property, Information, and Technology Law, which allows students to keep their jobs while pursuing their dream of becoming a lawyer. The hybrid program brings our top-flight IP legal education to students in 35 states across the nation. This ranking is another testament to our continuing commitment to and vision for providing the highest-level education to law students. I am so proud of our IP focus at the law school.”
UNH Franklin Pierce has some of the most robust resources in intellectual property, with over half the faculty demonstrating expertise in the area. The law school also boasts the only academic IP library in the Western Hemisphere. UNH Franklin Pierce practices excellence in all areas of law, including social justice.
