New England Law | Boston

Master's Programmes

Law (1)



New England Law | Boston began in 1908 as Portia Law School, which offered a legal education exclusively to women at a time when most other institutions would not accept them at all. The early Portia Law School students were primarily from working-class and immigrant families and many had only a high school education, since the state did not require a college degree to study law.


Whatever your career goals and scheduling requirements, you’ll find the law degree programs at New England Law | Boston to be comprehensive, flexible, and responsive to your needs. 


The Career Services Office helps students plan their careers with personalized career counseling, résumé and cover letter reviews, and mock interviews, along with a mentor program and a searchable database of internships and job opportunities.

Student Reviews

University of the future
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

My experience at my university was great.There we learned how to work in a group and how to be a collaborator. Another advantage of this university is that we were not treated as students but as future colleagues.also the pedagogues were highly qualified which made the way of teaching more attractive
