One of the best experiences I’ve had at law school.
It is hard to describe, but the best part is realizing how my thinking has changed. I can’t point to a singular “best” experience, because I am so proud of how New England Law has helped shape me into who I am and continue to become. The professors, clinic supervisors, and Career Services Office have been immeasurably helpful in helping me gain confidence in myself and my work. I have learned so much about the law and cultivated a deeper passion for it, but the faculty and staff have also helped me become a more capable and professional version of myself.
Favorite class I’ve taken.
Civil Procedure. I loved learning about the tension between the lofty, intangible goals of our justice system and the reality of the process’s application.
Why did I choose New England Law?
I chose New England Law because it has the strongest sense of teamwork. I felt the school is dedicated to creating a lifelong network for all students in the interest of lifelong success. It was clear even from my initial tour that the importance of community runs deep.
On my Classmates
So supportive. Law school introduces you to people who have similar ambitions and goals as you. And you are all sitting in the same classrooms every single day of 1L. This creates deep bonds
On the Faculty
Very in tune with the students. They don’t just show up, teach, and leave. They reach out to students when they have relevant opportunities, they help student organizations with events, and they try to expand the school’s network.
A great resource. I have gotten a few opportunities from alumni who have reached out to the Career Services Office looking specifically for New England Law students. Every time I have worked for or with New England Law alumni, they have been dedicated mentors who seem very excited to share their experiences.
On Career Services
The Career Services Office has everything you need to get a great job or internship! Do not pass over this resource! They will not rest if you need help getting an internship or job. I have used their job board to get every job I have gotten during law school. They will introduce you to a huge variety of opportunities that you would otherwise not even know existed.
The education New England Law provides is holistic. Through the clinic program and Career Services Office you get great practical application. Professors are experts at their craft, but also concerned for their students as human beings. The faculty and staff provide a well-rounded education to produce capable professionals.
I am so proud of how New England Law has helped shape me into who I am and continue to become. The professors, clinic supervisors, and Career Services Office have been immeasurably helpful in helping me gain confidence in myself and my work.
