(Non-ABA school) Southern New England School of Law
« on: December 11, 2003, 10:24:05 PM »
Does anyone here have any experience or comments (good or bad) regarding the Southern New England School of Law in Massachusetts?

I understand that SNESL is a non-ABA school and my practice options are going to be somewhat limited, yet despite this non-ABA status I'm curious as to the reputation of the school itself.

Thanks.

I can't speak for Southern New England but I attend Birmingham School of Law in Alabama.  It is non-ABA.  BSL does a good job of getting older students through law school.  BSl grads are pretty much limited to practicing within the state  until they have practices long enough to meet the requirements for other states. The pass rate on the bar is lower than the ABA schools.  It all comes down to getting out what you put in .  Check out my website for some non-traditional schools.  lawschoolafterdark.com

I've applied to the Nashville School of Law, another non-ABA school.  They have a good reputation.  Several of their faculty are sitting judges and one is on the state supreme court.
Several alumni are sitting judges.  Did I mention that Albert Gore, Sr. is an alumnus? :)

David,

I have been accepted to SNESL.  From what I know, there's a merger between it and Umass-Dartmouth to make it the first public law school in Massachusetts.
I know that the school flunked accreditation in 97 and 99. But they are up for accreditation again in 2006. If the merger does go through, it could really help.

Just wondering, where did you end up going?

I also have been accepted into Southern New England School of Law. I will strongly consider attending this fall if the merger with UMASS goes thru.

I'm really thinking of going to SNESL. The UMASS Board of Trustee has approved of the merger. All it has to do now is go through the Board of Education.

It's not even provisionally accredited.
