Because you'll graduate with a full year of professional legal experience.
We measure our success not by the ideals our graduates hold or the knowledge they acquire but by the lives they affect. Every day for more than 40 years, NUSL educated lawyers in private practice and public service, in the most powerful law firms and the scrappiest nonprofit agencies, have practiced their profession with consummate skill and integrity. In doing so, they make the world a better place—a better place to do business, to raise a family, to be a free and fully realized human being.
At Northeastern University School of Law, the open exchange of ideas and perspectives enriches the learning process and produces lawyers who collaborate to solve problems. Our faculty, students and graduates bring energy and a sense of engagement to thinking creatively about using law as a means to achieve justice.
