Prelaw Advising

Moot Courtroom

If your goal is to attend law school after UNH,  the Prelaw Advising office is here to help.  

A Prelaw Advisor is available to consult with UNH students, alumni, faculty, and staff about applying to, paying for, and thriving in law school and beyond.  We sponsor informational sessions, individual advising appointments, panel discussions with law school students, and law school graduates practicing law or using their JD in their chosen career.  

Visit the links in the left column to learn more about UNH Prelaw Advising, and the law school application process. 

Please note: we've moved to Kendall Hall temporarily, during the Hood House renovations.
