I would like to share my law school experience as a 1L at New England Law School and extend my gratitude to my Professors, Dean Greenberg and Jacki Pilgrim for making my experience exceptional.I was accepted to a larger law school but decided on NESL as I felt the school was very welcoming and gave each student personalized attention. That is what I found at NESL.I also found that my fellow classmates were very engaged in their learning, helpful and supportive to one another. Everyone is willing to share their notes if you miss a class.I truly admired how dedicated the Professors, Administrators and my classmates were to their legal studies.From the first day when President and Dean O'Brien said "we want you here and will do all we can to help you succeed" to our 1L entering class, he kept his promise to us and the experience was wonderful along the way.New England is the school for an engaging and personal law school experience. The school is known for its rich heritage, its location, as a place to be taught by amazingly talented Professors who are foremost in their field of legal study, where you will be challenged in legal doctrine, to be kept up to date on changing trends, for its high Bar passage, Career Services and to make lasting friendships.I highly recommend New England Law school to any student who is considering law school in the Boston area.Kind Regards,Nancee Rothenberg

Attending New England Law helped propel me to achieve my career dreams! With an excellent faculty, fabulous facilities to learn and study in, and great student services and resources, I was put on the right path to succeed post-graduation. The faculty actually care and take time to help students both in and outside of the classroom. The alumni are well established, work in a diverse array of industries and settings, and all are willing to take the time to help students. The Career Services Office knows what they are talking about and in conjunction with the Clinical department helps students earn experience while studying to be prepared for post-grad work. There is not enough I could say about how great of a law school New England Law is.

New England Law Boston has excellent staff. The professors are welcoming, knowledgeable, and most importantly they are available and accessible. The law school experience anywhere depends greatly on what the student makes of it. New England Law Boston has everything a good student needs to make it a great experience. Additionally, the school provides excellent post-graduation support during the bar exam study period.

Overall Rating:

It has very low admission standards compared to most of the other law schools in the Boston area. If you cannot get in anywhere else, you might give them a shot. It is very easy to get admitted. They admit people with below 2.8 undergrad GPA and LSAT scores in the 140's. Yikes! It has very high acceptance rates, 80%+. You have to wonder what it would take to not get admitted.Despite its low ranking, the law school has excelled in one area, law dean greed and tuition increases. Law Dean O'Brien was said to be the highest paid law dean in the country, raking in far more than the dean of Harvard Law. That is probably the only thing this school will ever be number one in. His compensation is in stark contrast to the poor outcomes and high student debt many of the graduates will face.

I am a 1L Evening student and I can truly say, I am completely happy with my decision to attend NESL over other schools. The student body is amazing, extremely helpful and welcoming. The professors always make themselves available for any questions I may have, and the library staff is beyond knowledgeable! Even the personnel of the school are great, the security guards are always friendly and eager to help. I have a great mentor whom is available for personal questions, as well as academic of course. The Academic Excellence program has proven to be extremely helpful, though not mandatory to attend, just an extra boost to help with the materials. I read a few reviews from here before I visited and was a bit wary, but I am glad I trusted my gut and decided to attend! I don't regret it at all and I doubt you will if you attend! Good luck on your journey wherever you decide to attend.
