Western New England University School of Law will host prospective students at an Open House on Saturday, February 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Blake Law Center.

The Open House is designed for students interested in pursuing 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.
