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.
At Northeastern, 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 United States, and the “out, loud and proud” voices of our LGBTQ students bring welcome perspectives to our community dialogues.
Most of all, our student are self-starters who nimbly travel between the classroom and co-op, bringing fresh insights back and forth so that both academic discourse and workplace challenges are explored through conversations based on hands-on experiences. No wonder The National Jurist ranks us #1 for practical training. And, we certainly can’t argue with Above the Law, which ranks us the #1 “most wicked awesome law school in Boston."
