Law school starts hybrid online, residential degree program

August 16, 2019 GMT

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s only law school is launching what it believes is the first hybrid online and residential program with a focus on intellectual property law.

The new program at the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law started this week with five days of classes for its 45 enrollees. The students, 43 of whom are from out of state, will then return home to finish most of the program online.

The move comes as law school enrollment continues to fall nationwide.

Dean Megan Carpenter told the Concord Monitor that the school is “revolutionizing legal education.”
