New England Law (NESL) was founded in 1908 and grants law degrees in four-year full-time or part-time and evening programs.  

New England Law is known for its experiential learning and public interest law programs. For example, each semester, JD program students engage with faculty members, judges, practicing attorneys, and international prosecutors in real-world legal work. Dozens of law clinics, legal internships, externships, and business practice positions offer a wide spectrum of placements in the region’s law firms, public agencies, courts, corporations, international criminal tribunals, and the school’s in-house legal office.

New England Law students also sharpen their research, writing, and advocacy skills producing highly regarded scholarly publications and competing in award-winning advocacy teams. The New England Law Review and the New England Journal on Criminal and Civil Confinement are student-run operations that receive input from faculty advisers. The school’s moot court and mock trial lineups feature several faculty-coached traveling teams as well as an in-house competition.

The school is located in the Theater District in downtown Boston with numerous cultural and entertainment attractions nearby.
