Fall 2017 Information Sessions!

Law School at night

By Settenah – Office of Admissions

As the students in the Class of 2020 settle into their routines as 1Ls, the Office of Admissions is gearing up to bring in the Class of 2021. The Northeastern School of Law application for Fall 2018 went live on August 15th and we have planned several information sessions to help prospective students learn more about the application process, as well as what Northeastern University School of Law has to offer. A campus tour is incorporated into each session to give students an idea of the campus layout, and provide them with the opportunity to meet different community members.

The remaining Information Sessions are planned for Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 and Monday, November 13th, 2017 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. If you are interested in attending, register here!

Challenges of the 1L Year

By Miranda ’19

If I told you 1L isn’t hard, I would be lying. Throughout 1L you are almost always battling stress, insecurities, competition, frustration and challenges.
