Pathways is an online program that helps students to explore various areas of legal practice and select courses that will give them the skills and expertise needed to practice in that area. It allows them to personalize their law school plan, preparing them for a successful and rewarding legal pathway.
Pathways assist law students in selecting their courses. Each Pathway recommends courses that students should take according to their desired practice goals. Although these Pathways do not create any specialties or concentrations, they are used primarily to advise law students about courses that will be beneficial for them in order to pursue law career paths after graduation.
The Pathways program was developed by our sister school in the Consortium for Innovative Legal Education—Mitchell Hamline School of Law—and has been adapted for use at New England Law with Mitchell Hamline’s permission.
