The next governor of New Hampshire is Maggie Hassan. Hassan is a 1985 graduate of the Northeastern School of Law. In an interview with news@Northeastern, Hassan said that her education and co-ops while in school will help her lead the state.

“My time at North­eastern was remark­able in a lot of dif­ferent ways,” Hassan said. “More than any­thing, what I learned in law school was that every­body counts, and one of the things that lawyers at their best do is make sure dif­ferent people’s voices are heard. That’s been an impor­tant thing I have car­ried with me since law school, and I know many of my class­mates have too.”

Hassan is the former Majority Leader of the state’s senate and is a Democrat. She defeated Republican Ovide Lamontagne by acquiring 54.6 percent of the vote.

“I’m really grateful to the people of New Hamp­shire for the trust they’ve put in me and I’m excited to work with them to move for­ward,” said Hassan. She becomes the first graduate of the school to become a state governor.

Hassan earned a bachelor’s degree from Brown University and entered into the public service sector in 1999. Her first positions in the public sector was as an advocate for the Advi­sory Com­mittee to the Ade­quacy in Edu­ca­tion and Finance Com­mis­sion. Hassan served six years after being elected to the New Hampshire Senate in 2004.

Hassan enjoyed her co-ops while at Northeastern and they included stops in government, criminal justice and large private firms.

“I was able to get expe­ri­ence in many of kinds of law, and I think those oppor­tu­ni­ties have served me very well,” Hassan said. “As I went through law school and gained expe­ri­ence through the co-​​op pro­gram, it gave me the foun­da­tion to move for­ward to my time prac­ticing the law and cre­ated the foun­da­tion for being a state Senator.”
