UNH Law Appoints Ashooh as Interim Director of Rudman Center
The UNH School of Law recently announced that Richard Ashooh has been named interim executive director of the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy.
Ashooh, a member of the late US Senator Rudman’s staff, has served on the board of trustees for the University System of New Hampshire and the Business and Industry Association. Law school officials say Ashooh’s appointment comes as the Rudman Center strengthens its commitment to being a student-focused institute preparing law students for careers in public service.
“My efforts will be dedicated to bolstering the center’s fundamentals: institutional advancement, mission focus and meeting the needs of its students,” Ashooh said. “Prioritizing these factors will pave the way to the center’s long-term leadership.”
Founded in 2013, the center provides academic and financial support to students working toward public service legal careers.
Ashooh’s predecessor, former NH Supreme Court chief justice and UNH Law dean, John Broderick, resigned five months ago after he and the university disagreed over the level of support and future goals for the Rudman Center.
