At UMass Law, student life is centered around developing a professional identity as you grow in knowledge of the law.
The sense of community is strong. Study groups begin to form. Professors become advisors, mentors, and guides. Student organizations enhance your interests and aspirations.
The opportunities to gain practical experience are wide-ranging: clinics, field placements, pro bono work, and the legal skills program.
The commitment to justice is real. UMass Law prepares lawyers ready to pursue justice through research, practice, public service, professional partnerships, advocacy for legal access, and contributions to social and economic development.
