Welcome to the CLSR!

It starts with advocacy. New England Law professors lend legal support in an array of public interest areas, including criminal justice, immigration, education, the environment, and women's and children's issues. Through the CLSR, these professors lend support to one another, develop courses around their public interest work, and bring students into the projects.  Students may enroll in advocacy-focused courses, attend a steady stream of CLSR-sponsored events, and, most importantly, actively participate in real-world public interest law projects. Whether working alongside professors or under the guidance of full-time legal service providers, New England Law students have the opportunity to gain real lawyering experiences from their first year forward.

Summer Fellowship Program

The New England Law | Boston Summer Fellowship Program aids New England Law students in their efforts to gain valuable practice experience during the summer after their first year of law school and, for students in the part-time program, their second year.  The New England Law Board of Trustees has pledged that each fellow will receive a stipend of $3,500 to assist with summer living expenses.  Learn more about our Summer Fellowship Program.
