Helps Keep Legal
To support that sentiment, in May 2014, the University took a bold step and froze tuition at current levels for the next four years—
from the academic year 2014-15 through 2017-18.
This decision will keep our high quality, private
legal education affordable for students—both today
and after graduation.
With fewer people attending law school nationally, strong candidates today have many options.
Western New England University has worked strategically to hone our messages about quality and our
strong emphasis on experiential learning that helps
our students to be ready to enter the profession at
graduation. The administration has also strived to
keep budgets in check and improve efficiencies
within its operations. These efforts have enabled
us to put the tuition freeze in effect to ease the
financial burden of our incoming students.
“We are committed to providing a high quality
legal education at an affordable cost,” said Dean
Gouvin. “Toward that end, the School of Law will
hold tuition at current levels through 2017–2018.
With the support of alumni and other donors
through scholarships, we can help keep the
dream of a legal education attainable.”
“If a student has the drive and commitment to dedicate three to four years of
his or her life to the intensive study of
law, we must do all that we can to keep
that dream within their reach.”
