New England School of Law has incredible professors who go above and beyond to make sure the students are getting the most out of class time. The professors come from diverse backgrounds and truly care about their students. Since New England Law is a small school it allows students to have more in depth classroom discussions and lessons which is not common in larger classroom settings. The location of New England Law is also very beneficial to learning because we are situated right in downtown Boston close to court houses and many law firms. There are a lot of options for students to gain outside legal experience close to school which may not be possible in schools set in rural areas. Although there are many pros to New England Law one of the cons would be the cost of living in Boston. Boston is an expensive city to live in but since the school is in the middle of the city, it is very close to the MBTA and accessible from different forms of transportation. Another con would be the competition among the other 4 law schools in the city for only so many job opportunities. Although the competition for jobs in Boston is high because there are five law schools, New England Law gives students all the necessary tools to get the jobs and internships they apply for.

The faculty for New England Law | Boston is wonderful. They really care about the students and try to help whenever possible. The school is in a great location in Boston, and the security is very good. The students do a great job of providing networking opportunities and other social events. The classes are challenging, but the Professors are available to meet with the students as frequently as needed throughout each semester.

Law School in general is a huge commitment that some people are never prepared for. NESL faculty and students have a way of hiding the rat-race feel that so many law schools have, while still remaining competitive.

Great school overall. Unfortunately, I had a couple bad experiences with professors. As a con, I feel as though the school doesn't accommodate for the night student's schedule nearly as much as they do for the day students.

The Pros: The school has an amazing faculty. The teachers care tremendously about the success of the students that attend and go above and beyond their duty to support each student as much as they can. I have had nothing but great interactions with the faculty at the school and truly believe that I am getting a quality education from some of the top academics in the legal field. Generally, all of the students are willing to help one another out and there is great first year support. The Cons: Boston is an expensive city and the cost of living is tremendous. Furthermore, due to the tuition of the school, the amount of loans can feel overwhelming. Although the diversity at the school is improving, there is still a long way to go. Although first year support is great, the support for the following two to three years could be improved. The biggest con is that the school does not have any academic advisers or counselors.

It's a decent program, however the cost to attend is very high while the job prospects are still a bit bleak. If you have good connections you should be fine once you graduate. You just really need to network and prove yourself, because there won't be a ton to fall back on if you haven't worked hard.
