Academics

Learn it. Live it.

A rigorous curriculum, exceptional professors and unmatched experiential learning opportunities fuel Northeastern’s one-of-a-kind academic enterprise. You’ll synergistically learn complicated legal concepts, solve real legal problems and develop research, analysis, writing and debate expertise.

Our first-year courses allow you to build strong foundations in key areas of the law and put them into practice through a Legal Skills in Social Context project on behalf of a community-based or public service organization. Through upper-level electives such as Intellectual Property, International Law and Public Health Law, you’ll build expertise in the areas you’re most passionate about. Along the way, you’ll be mentored and taught by exceptional faculty who publish in leading law journals and are hands-on pro bono practitioners.

In just three years, you’ll be ready to practice law — armed with unparalleled depth of knowledge and more legal experience than graduates of any other law school.
