Former Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, John Broderick, will step down as dean of the UNH law school.
Broderick will become the first executive director for the Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public policy, which opened last year.
The Rudman Center, which is part of the UNH law school, seeks to provide leadership training and foment commitment to public service.
In a statement Broderick said he had achieved what he set out to accomplish as Dean: integrating the law school with the university, and boosting its standing in national rankings.
Jordan Budd, who was previously associate Dean for academic affairs, will take over as interim Dean for a period of three years.
Broderick steps down June 30th.
