Northeastern University School of Law


As you are probably aware, there are ongoing problems with myLaw that have limited access for our community.  We realize this has created an inconvenience, and apologize. Please be assured we are working hard to rectify the problems.


While the myLaw issues are sorted out, here are directions to help you find what you need:


Any information concerning informational sessions, webinars or changes in regulations will be communicated to students via email. Or, you can stop by the office.


Most of the Career Services resources on mylaw can be accessed through the law school’s main website at http://www.northeastern.edu/law/careers. This includes: Career Information Online (user name: social, password: justice), which provides access to job listings, office publications and career-related sites. 

Symplicity will give you access to job postings by this department as well as other announcements.

Career Services will be sending its weekly newsletter, Professional Development Weekly, by e-mail on Tuesday afternoons.


All important information pertaining to co-op continues to be available to students. The office is sending pdfs of the interview/offer postings previously found on myLaw to all students twice per day, so please be sure to check your Husky e-mail. Please monitor the Symplicity Announcements (visible on the home page of Symplicity after you log in) for notices about deadlines, opportunities and future updates. The office will also be uploading documents and other materials formerly available on myLaw to the Document Library on Symplicity in the coming weeks.

The co-op staff is available to answer any questions. For questions about co-op funding, please contact Jeff Smith at jeff.smith@neu.edu. For questions about co-op deadlines, policies and timing rules, please contact Quaime Lee at q.lee@neu.edu. For questions about Symplicity, please contact Caitlin Fitz Gerald at c.fitzgerald@neu.edu. To request a change of rotation, please contact Bill Greene at b.greene@neu.edu. For all other questions, please contact lawcoop@neu.edu and please note the nature of your inquiry in the subject line.


The Office of Academic and Student Affairs has created a “course” on TWEN to make available most of the information that was on myLaw, including pre-registration information, exam schedules, projected curriculum, academic calendar, etc. 

All law students have been added to the course on TWEN and should have access to all of the materials posted thus far. The office will continue to add materials as necessary, and is working to make forms available. If you notice that something important is missing, please alert Bill Greene.
