Under the guidance of Dean John F. O’Brien and a closely involved board of trustees, New England School of Law continued to rise in prominence. The accomplished faculty helped establish groundbreaking international programs. A long-standing commitment to diversity deepened with the creation of new scholarships and support programs for minority students.

In 1998, New England School of Law received a great honor: membership in the Association of American Law Schools. In 2008, the school honored itself, with a multi-event celebration of its centennial.
