About the School of Law

Pioneering The Future Of Legal Education

The legal educational experience is changing and Western New England University School of Law is proud to be at the forefront of preparing students to make the most of future opportunities. The School of Law is a forward leaning institution that offers a highly practical and professional approach to legal education. 

We provide our students with a solid foundation in theory strengthened by numerous experiential learning opportunities. As the only law school in western Massachusetts, our students enjoy exceptional access to clinical and externship opportunities in local and federal courts, the region's major employers, legal agencies, and law firms large and small.  

Our students graduate with practical skills gained from a highly supportive and personal educational experience that enables them to turn their passions into professions. 

Meet The Dean: Zelda B. Harris

“I’ve had the privilege, now that I’ve been here, to meet the students and the student body. I can say, without a doubt, WNE Law students are tenacious. They are ready to work and ready to learn. They’re committed. They’re committed to the communities in which they serve and the communities from which they come.”
