Western New England University School of Law will host prospective students at an Open House on Saturday, January 20 from 12:00 noon to 3:30 p.m. in the Blake Law Center.

The Open House is designed for students wishing to pursue a Juris Doctor (JD) full- or part-time, offering the opportunity to meet with faculty, current students, and admissions staff. The program will feature tours of the Blake Law Center including the extensive law library, a mock class, a panel discussion on how students can gain valuable experience during law school, and discussions of how to apply to and pay for law school.

“Western New England University has a long and distinguished history of being a rigorous training ground for future lawyers in a region ripe with opportunity,” says Anthony Orlando, director of law admissions. “The School of Law’s pragmatic curriculum attracts a diverse student body committed to excellence and passionate about making an impact on their communities and the legal landscape.”

The free event is open to the public; however, advance registration is required. To register or for more information, visit or call 413-782-1406.

Western New England University School of Law offers both full-time and part-time programs leading to the Juris Doctor (JD) degree, along with six dual degree programs: a JD/MBA, a JD/MS in Accounting, and a JD/MS in Organizational Leadership (all with the Western New England University College of Business); a JD/Master of Regional Planning (with the University of Massachusetts at Amherst); and a JD/Master of Social Work (with Springfield College). The School of Law also offers a MS in Law for non-lawyers, along with MS and LL.M. degrees in Estate Planning and Elder Law.
