CONCORD, N.H.—The retiring chief justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court is a finalist to become dean of the University of New Hampshire School of Law.
Law school officials say Chief Justice John Broderick is a finalist along with James Lupo, of the Northwestern University School of Law, and Michael Lawrence, a dean at the Michigan State University College of Law.
Law School Trustee Sherry Young tells the Concord Monitor a fourth applicant -- whose name is not yet being released publicly -- is also being considered. Young says no date has been set to pick the new dean.
Broderick announced in June that he would step down after 15 years on the New Hampshire Supreme Court. He became chief justice in 2004.
