Prepare for Outcomes that Matter

At Western New England University's School of Law, we are proud to offer a student-centered learning environment. We offer five concentrations, a robust academic success program, and 100% of our students graduate with experiential learning.

Student success is at the core of everything we do, including designing course schedules. All full-time class sessions are held Monday through Thursday; there are no regularly-scheduled classes on Fridays. For 1L students, this will allow for more time to study, participate in student organizations, attend workshops and professional development events, and keep up with obligations outside of law school. For 2L and 3L students, this will make it possible to take full advantage of the practical learning experiences.
