Few cities in the country, much less the world, boast the density of resources found in downtown Boston.

Student Life in Boston

From New England Law’s campus in the heart of the Theater District, it’s an easy walk to such power centers as the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, the Financial District, the Massachusetts State House, and Boston City Hall. Also in the neighborhood are five public parks and green spaces, nine major shopping areas, restaurants serving 16 distinct regional and international cuisines, the libraries and resources of other Boston law schools, and more than two dozen museums, theaters, historic landmarks, and major cultural institutions including Symphony Hall and the Boston Public Library.

Among law schools in Massachusetts, New England Law’s location is second to none in terms of opportunity.  Proximity to 10 state and federal courts, along with numerous government agencies and law firms, gives students access to an almost unlimited array of clerkships, clinic placements, and employment opportunities. Boston’s extensive public transportation system—just a few blocks from campus—reaches across town and deep into the city’s neighborhoods, and commuter rail service provides students living in Boston and regionally access to hundreds of communities for both work and play. The areas’ major thoroughfares are less than a mile away, making day or weekend trips a logistical cinch to other East Coast law schools for moot court competitions or other opportunities, or to the beach, mountains, and picturesque hamlets of New England for pleasure and diversion.

Boston is renowned for its five professional sports teams, 17 museums, and dozens of theaters and nightclubs, among other diversions. But essential local knowledge includes New England Law students’ favorite study breaks.
