Northeastern University School of Law is a small, close-knit community of legal scholars and practitioners housed inside one of the most dynamic private universities in the United States. In fact, Northeastern University has been named by U.S. News & World Report as America’s top “up-and-coming” private university, in recognition of “making the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty and student life.” 

At Northeastern University School of Law, we cultivate a collegial and supportive atmosphere that begins in the classroom and extends throughout the campus. Students regard one another as peers rather than rivals — teaming up for projects and study sessions, collaborating as members of student groups and forging professional and personal bonds that endure long after graduation.

LLM students are invited and encouraged to participate in the law school's more than 25 student organizations and to take advantage of amenities like the Marino Center, which will help you keep physically fit and mentally alert.

Our facilities are world class. Our student services are impeccable. Need help finding a place to live? Look no further than the; Office of Off Campus Student Services. International students benefit from the expertise and experience of Northeastern's Office of Global Services (OGS).

When you’re not studying in the stacks of the law library or taking full advantage of all the campus has to offer, you will find the city of Boston awaiting as your professional arena and personal adventure. Days spent working and studying can be capped off by taking in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park or unwinding with an evening stroll along the banks of the Charles River.
