The best way to learn about a law school is to visit! If you will be in the Boston area, we encourage you to see what life is really like here at New England Law. You’ll find everything you need to plan your guided tour, information session, and more on this page. 

Learn more about our law school through visits and tours.

Guided Law School Tours

Our guided law school tours are typically available Monday through Friday, as well as some evenings and weekends. Please check tour times and availability for the specific day you would like to visit.

Tours are led by student ambassadors or Office of Admissions representatives. Each has an optional class visit at the end—but we strongly encourage you to stick around, because the class visit can be an important part of making your final law school decision. 

Our goal is to give every prospective student the personal attention they deserve during their law school visit. Please schedule your guided tour at least one week in advance, so we can tailor the visit to your needs. We appreciate two weeks' notice for weekend and evening tours.

The 2019 tour schedule will be posted soon. In the interim, you can email admit@nesl.edu to set up a tour directly. Self-guided law school tours are also available every day (see below).
