Immigration Law and Intellectual Property Law are dynamic fields with highly rewarding and exciting job opportunities. Our law school offers concentrations in these two fields to provide students with a focus while in law school and additional credentials when they enter the job market.

Law school students take advantage of New England Law specializations
Vanessa Woodman de Lazo landed a clerkship with the prestigious U.S. Department of Justice Attorney General’s Honors Program after graduating. That position led to her becoming assistant chief counsel for the Department of Homeland Security in San Francisco. But it all started with the concentration in Immigration Law. 

Fast-Growing Law Specializations

The concentrations in Immigration Law and Intellectual Property Law take full advantage of New England Law’s strong faculty, wealth of experiential learning opportunities, and broad range of courses. Each law specialization includes real-world work experience through clinics, fellowships, internships, and moot court/mock trial opportunities.

Students can also strengthen their foundation in these specializations through study abroad, access to unique job listings, school-funded summer fellowships, and faculty advisors with deep expertise. Completion of the concentration is noted on transcripts for employers.
