Strong Start for UMass Law

Following the merger of the Southern New England School of Law with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, the new UMass Law School is enjoying a larger class with enhanced academic credentials.

The Southern New England School of Law became instantly more prestigious and reputable due to its affiliation with UMass Dartmouth, and this while the law school has yet to be accredited by the American Bar Association.
