Dedicated to Teaching, Committed to Students

Ask students and graduates what makes Western New England University School of Law unique and one answer is bound to be its faculty. Some would refer to the faculty's impressive credentials and teaching qualifications, while others would point to their distinguished careers. All would mention the faculty's accessibility and commitment to teaching.

The School of Law's 38 full-time faculty members have been educated at many of the nation's most prestigious law schools. All have practiced law prior to joining our faculty, with most having practiced in the fields of law they now teach. Our adjunct faculty is comprised of more than 30 professionals, including practicing attorneys and judges, who bring current legal practice into the classroom.

Faculty Who Care About Students

Visitors immediately sense that our faculty are passionate about teaching. In the classroom, professors engage students in lively debate, challenging them to defend positions, and encouraging them to express thoughts and opinions.

Outside class, it is common to see students and professors meeting in hallways or working together in small groups. Faculty maintain regularly scheduled office hours, availing themselves to students for conversations about anything from classes and career objectives to personal issues. Students can also find faculty members at a number of social events, from the Dean's Teas to informal pizza gatherings to sporting competitions.

The School of Law places a strong emphasis on collaborative learning and student-professor interaction. By fostering an open and comfortable atmosphere, we believe that students obtain a positive legal education while preparing to become highly effective legal practitioners.
