New England Law | Boston
New Name Adopted in 2008
The school adopted a new name, New England Law | Boston, as it entered its second century. In written communications, this can be shortened to New England Law on second reference. New England School of Law is still used for diplomas and limited business purposes.
The new name includes New England Law’s Boston location. The school takes great advantage of its location in the heart of the city, with exceptional adjunct faculty drawn from local law firms, courts, and government offices, and with ready access to placements for clinics and internships.
The new logo’s crest and bridge celebrate Boston and recall the spirit of graduate Leonard P. Zakim ’78, the late civil rights leader for whom the city’s now iconic Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge is named. The logo also includes the year that New England Law was founded, 1908, which highlights the school’s long heritage.
