A Welcoming, Close-Knit Legal Community
Since our founding in 1908 as the only law school exclusively for women, New England Law has strived to make the legal community
more diverse. Racial minorities make up about 30 percent of our student body, and our Charles Hamilton Houston Enrichment
Program offers activities for students interested in issues of race and ethnicity. Our law school has been co-educational
As early as the summer after the first year, New England Law students have a variety of opportunities to apply what they
have learned in international programs, clinical training, the Summer Fellowship Program, and moot court.
Special projects sponsored by New England Law’s three academic centers—the Center for Business Law, the Center
for Law and Social Responsibility, and the Center for International Law and Policy—give students the chance to
bring their knowledge to the front lines of practice.
In the Heart of Boston
Our downtown Boston location offers many advantages. The campus is close to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, the
Financial District, the State House, Government Center, and numerous state and federal courts, government agencies,
and law firms—all potential employers.
Our world-class location also attracts those who are influencing the legal landscape. Many local and national thought leaders,
including eight US Supreme Court justices, have lectured, taught, and met with New England Law students and professors.
