The UNH School of Law checked in at number 85 on U.S. News and World Report’s 2018 list of the best law schools, up 15 spots from last year and the biggest rise among the top 100 schools this year. In addition, the intellectual property degree program was ranked 6th, making 2018 the 27th consecutive year in which the IP program has been rated among the top 10 in the country.

“The U.S. News rankings can never capture the full range of merit and talents in any school community,” notes UNH Law Dean Megan Carpenter, “but to the extent they do reflect certain data points, we are proud of our climb this year, which reflects our sustained dedication to providing a rewarding legal education and underscores the strong reputation we have established over an extended period of time."
