New England Law does not have that typical “cut-throat” law school atmosphere. My classmates and I support each other, whether someone doesn’t understand the material or is having a personal issue. I think of my law school section as one big family. When I lost my grandfather right before finals, my classmates were beyond supportive. They were constantly checking in on me to see if I was okay, if I needed to talk, and if I was falling behind in my outlines. I’ve never received so many hugs, kind words, and even coffees. It’s easy to say New England Law is a great community during the good times, but it’s exceptional during the tough times too.
