Juris Doctor Admissions

A Greater Degree of Impact

In the legal field, there is no substitute for experience. In the Juris Doctor program, we help you develop the practical skills lawyers use and apply them in a professional context. The legal principles you learn in your fist year will be put into action in your second and third years. You can assist real clients in one of our many clinics, gain experience through an externship, research and write a scholarly note for the Western New England Law Review, participate in a moot court or other competition team, or receive credit through study abroad experiences. Concentrations and dual degree opportunities enable you to channel your passions into areas of law where you can have the greatest impact.
