Reference and electronic resources librarian Tom Hemstock shows us where the microfiche is kept, deep in the bowels of the library. In a law school setting, a librarian like Tom can garner rock star status. Consider the microfiche one of his deeper cuts.
School founder Robert Rines was, among other things, an inventor. (Also on that list: soldier, composer, scientist, musician and Loch Ness Monster hunter). The school’s earliest focus was on patent law, a tradition that carries on today. Here, we see an expanding drum for a paper-cutting machine, submitted for patent in 1878.
Receptionist Jan Neuman is considered an institution and a treasure by those who work and study with her. Look her up for a detailed history of the campus’s expansion from a former silver factory to a six-building campus with additions galore!
Some of the school’s 445 enrolled students honing their legal mind-blades. Aspiring lawyers flock to Concord from such diverse international locations as China, Jamaica, Iraq, Morocco, Germany and even Canada!

What happens when you press the “4” elevator button in a building with only three floors? The Insider simply had to find out! Spoiler alert: nothing happened. Turns out, the building was originally designed with expansion in mind, but a fourth floor was never built.
Donna Garofoli shows off the latest in functional fashion at the bookstore. She must have had to run a clearance sale when the school officially changed its name from the Franklin Pierce Law Center last August. Make it rain, Donna!
I told you they made Sandra Day O’Connor bobblehead dolls; pay up. O’Connor may not be on staff, but some faculty have donned the black robes; Dean John Broderick Jr. was chief justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court from 2004 to 2010.
