Who Studies at NUSL?
Thanks to our nearly 50-year record of leadership in experiential education, our location in the heart of one of America’s most historic and dynamic cities and our commitment to serving the public interest, Northeastern University School of Law attracts a certain type of person.
Someone who wants to make a difference. Someone who believes in justice and fairness. Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves, maintain their ideals and work hard to be an honest and effective advocate for their clients.
Our students tend to look a lot like their clients, which is to say that the diversity of the world is reflected in our classrooms. In fact, The National Jurist magazine recently placed Northeastern in its top 10 list of most diverse law schools in the US, and The Princeton Review ranked us No. 2 in the nation for providing the best law school environment for minorities. Clearly, diversity for us is not a goal, but a reality that distinguishes Northeastern.
