The University of New Hampshire School of Law has named an expert in intellectual property law as its new dean.

After what school officials call an ‘extensive national search,’ Megan Carpenter, currently on the faculty of Texas A&M’s law school, will take over as dean of UNH Law in July.

Carpenter founded a law center at Texas A&M focused on intellectual property law.

US News & World Report currently ranks UNH Law as the 5th best law school in the country for intellectual property law.

Carpenter will be the first woman to lead UNH Law since it was founded in 1973.
