Juris Doctor Curriculum | Required Courses and Legal Clinics
Required courses in the JD curriculum at New England Law | Boston serve as the foundation for more advanced legal study in the second year and beyond. Our curriculum provides the basis for the contemporary practice of law.
New England Law students begin taking clinics as early as the start of their second year. Clinics help students find areas of the law that are of the greatest interest and help to build expertise in these areas. Clinical work also elevates a student’s résumé and enhances readiness for the bar exam.
The Consortium for Innovative Legal Education (CILE) is a group of four independent law schools that offers joint study abroad programs, visit-in programs to provide geographic flexibility for students, and other creative programming and services for the four schools. Through these programs and a wide variety of externships available to New England Law students, the legal curriculum includes opportunities for summer, semester, or year-long study at member institutions in the United States and abroad.
