One of the best experiences I’ve had at law school.

Attending Law Day was one of my favorite experiences, not only because everyone dressed so beautifully but because the presentation and sense of camaraderie that night made me extremely proud to be a member of the New England Law community.

Favorite class I’ve taken.

My favorite classes were Property I and II, as I am interested in both real property, and IP and constitutional law. It was the most challenging and intellectually stimulating course work of my 1L year, and it forced me to think at a higher level.

On my Classmates

Friendly, highly diverse, and intellectual

On the Faculty

The faculty are deeply invested and committed to students’ success. They are active mentors in aiding us to become the best lawyers possible.

On Alumni

Alumni are dedicated to paying forward the opportunities they themselves were afforded at New England Law. They are willing mentors who provide great advice and potential job opportunities.

On Career Services

The Career Services Office was extremely helpful. It has myriad offerings and resources to help students find internships and jobs.

On Education

So far I have received a top-notch education, both in the academic and professional sense, from every faculty and staff member I’ve encountered, whether they’re an esteemed professor, a resourceful librarian, or a knowledgeable Career Services staff member.

On Experience

Overall I have had a wonderful experience and have grown as a scholar and as a person. I look forward to next year!
