Massachusetts School of Law’s tuition is an astounding 60 percent below the other Boston schools at $21,000. The private law school has achieved that by being different from other law schools. But its strive to be affordable has cost it ABA accreditation. That means that graduates can only sit for the bar exam in Massachusetts and Connecticut. But, after passing the Massachusetts bar, they are eligible to take the exam in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Wisconsin, California, West Virginia and Maryland.

The law school also does not require the Law School Admission Test for admittance. Instead, it considers an essay test that the school itself has developed and most importantly, is read and graded by a full-time MSLAW professor who, based upon years of practical and academic experience, is well qualified to assess an applicant’s ability to think and write well.

The law school employs the “medical school” model in its approach to legal education and has a strong focus on practical training. Located 30 minutes north of the city, it was founded in 1988.
