Welcome back, Franklin Pierce. The moniker of our 14th president is returning to legal education after a nine-year absence. University of New Hampshire Law School dean Megan Carpenter announced Tuesday that the Concord campus will henceforth be known as the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law after years of alumni requests. The new name will also capitalize on the school’s reputation as an intellectual property powerhouse, according to Carpenter.
