The UNH Law Sports Law Repository was a collaborative effort between the IP Mall and Professor Michael McCann, Director of the UNH Law Sports Law Institute. Prof. McCann approached me with the idea of offering unique sports law related content, not on the web as well as hosting other content for a "one stop shop" for sports lawyers and professionals. The site was under development for a year with the assistance of Gradaute Programs student Razan Taha.
CONCORD – The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Law and the Library of Congress’s Law Library have selected Concord and UNH Law as a location on the national tour of a travelling exhibition honoring the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, the charter sealed by King John of England that is acknowledged as the basis for the rule of law in modern democracies.

A lot of renovations between then and now. Times may change, but the spirit of UNH Law remains the same (now even higher in the rankings as a top 100 law school). Slante!
Thousands of new eBooks are now available to our community thanks to the Library's continued cooperation with the larger UNH system. These titles, mostly non-legal subjects, are integrated into the catalog directly. Information on accessing eBooks and other databases off campus is available here.
