Careers as paralegals or in law-related fields are among the fastest-growing areas of employment. Government, business, industry, and labor are turning to dispute resolution programs as alternatives to the court system. Graduates knowledgeable in regulatory affairs can exploit growth opportunities provided in international business, securities, and banking. The legal studies program prepares UNH graduates to take full advantage of these exciting and growing career opportunities.
The program combines a rich background in the liberal arts, in humanities, and in legal and public policy theory with legal, public affairs, and dispute resolution courses. This interdisciplinary approach develops critical thinking and writing that prepares bachelor's degree students for both careers and graduate study or law school.
