New England Law | Boston offers a wide-ranging program of practical opportunities that includes coursework paired with clinics and externships. Students are able to participate in the clinical program as early as the first semester of their second year. Every student who wishes to participate is guaranteed the opportunity to do so.

“New England Law | Boston offers an exceptional academic program, an engaged, welcoming community, and experiential learning opportunities that are among the most varied in the nation — all in the heart of Boston's legal community,” said Dean John F. O’Brien. “The faculty offers elite academic credentials, a wealth of legal practice experience, and a strong desire to help students reach their goals. The school's adjunct professors are outstanding practitioners, and more than a dozen are sitting judges. Eight Supreme Court Justices have lectured, taught, and met with New England Law students and professors.”

The Summer Fellowship Program helps students gain experience, build résumés, and make valuable connections in the summer following their first year and, for evening students, their second year. The program provides 10-week fellowships in a wide range of legal settings, each with a significant stipend from New England Law. Approximately 100 students participated in 2015.

Among the many areas of study are concentrations in Immigration Law and Intellectual Property Law and a focus in Compliance. Programs include a variety of judicial clerkships, internships with international tribunals, and eight study-abroad programs. 

As the first law school in the nation exclusively for women (and co-educational since 1938), the law school continues to welcome students of diverse backgrounds. Nearly a third of students identify themselves as minorities. The school also offers a program designed for parents with primary child-rearing responsibilities.

For students interested in international law, New England has seven study abroad programs, semester abroad opportunities in areas like Paris and Denmark, as well as international clinics and externships. Also, those looking for public interest can thrive in the Center for Law and Social Responsibility, which has six outstanding project areas such as environment, immigration and education.
