Message from the Dean
The decision to attend law school is a profound one that will take you on an intellectual journey unlike any you have ventured before. A career in the law is a noble and worthwhile undertaking. If you have the interest and the ability, a career in the law can be exciting and rewarding. As an attorney, you can be in a position to help shape the future of society for the good of all—and that can be highly satisfying.
Western New England University School of Law offers a well-rounded curriculum taught by experts and scholars in their respective fields. Students work with faculty in a close community of learning. Our faculty members have an open-door policy and are available for your educational and professional development. Our new and renovated law school facility will enhance that experience.
We pride ourselves on being a school where you and your fellow students can obtain a fundamental understanding of the philosophy and structure of the law, as well as the practical application of that law to everyday issues you will experience as an attorney. Our first-year section size is purposefully among the smallest in the country in order to promote collegiality and effective learning. Our clinics, externships, and vast array of skills courses will afford you the opportunity to develop classroom knowledge into genuine professional skills. Because of this educational philosophy, your step out of the law school door and into the legal profession will be smooth.
But don’t take my word for it; come and visit us. Our Assistant Dean and Director of Admissions, the Admissions Office staff, and I all look forward to meeting you personally. Give us an opportunity to show you a law school that sparks with excitement and collegiality. We regularly hold open houses and attend law school forums. Visit our website for dates and times and to learn more about the quality education we provide.
I hope that you will join us in an exciting and enjoyable law school educational experience.
