UNH Law

The University of New Hampshire School of Law has named an expert in intellectual property law as its new dean.

After what school officials call an ‘extensive national search,’ Megan Carpenter, currently on the faculty of Texas A&M’s law school, will take over as dean of UNH Law in July.

New Hampshire Public Radio and the UNH School of Law come together to bring you another event in their series, Justice & Journalism. This series presents a range of speakers to discuss the intersection of justice and journalism.

UNH Law Professor and Sports Journalist Michael McCann will teach a social science course to UNH Undergrads next year called “Deflategate.” 

The course will cover the intersection of sports law and journalism. Professor Michael McCann says it will include the Aaron Hernandez, Donald Sterling and "Deflategate" scandals, in addition to more general issues like union membership, contracts, and privacy rights.

The former New Hampshire state supreme court Chief Justice is stepping down from the UNH School of Law Warren B. Rudman Center.

John Broderick , who was Dean of the UNH Law School before he left that post to lead the Rudman Center last year, told NHPR that he and university administrators differed over the Rudman Center's future.

"I love the Rudman Center and what it stood for and its potential, and I can assure you I would never have left a job I love that much and a center that I helped found if I was getting support from the university," Broderick said.
