The University of Massachusetts School of Law-Dartmouth offers a rigorous and rewarding legal education that prepares students for a full range of careers in the practice of law. UMass Law students are encouraged to become 'Citizen Lawyers'. Lawyers committed to the betterment of their community by practicing in areas like Civil and Human Rights, Community Law Practice, Economic Justice and providing Legal support for nonprofit organizations and help with the creation of innovative industries.

UMass Law Is distinguished by dual commitments to both excellence and affordability.

The assurance of excellence is founded on the high quality of the law faculty at UMass Law and the innovative curriculum they deliver. The curriculum offers a range of classroom and practice-based instruction, including courses that provide a broad foundation both in the theory and in the practice of law. UMass Law students profit from the advantages of small classes, individual association with distinguished faculty, collaboration with fellow students, and active learning through engagement in a supportive university environment.

The assurance of affordability represents an essential commitment of Massachusetts’ public law school. Tuition rates are relatively low, both for in-state and out-of-state students. The Law School offers a range of particular financial aid possibilities in addition to state and federal programs, including academic scholarships and public service fellowships.

UMass Law believes that the quality of a legal education is enhanced when broadly differing perspectives on life and learning are shared and debated in an atmosphere of support and respect. As a part of the School's public mission and supported by its commitment to excellence and affordability, the Law School will enroll and graduate a significant proportion of students from ethnic, economic and regional groups which currently are under-represented in the law professions.

UMass Law offers full-time day, part-time day, and part-time evening weekend programs for the Juris Doctor degree, as well as a JD/MBA program and a JD/MPP program. For undergraduates attending the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth a 3+3 program is also offered.

As Massachusetts’ first and only public law school, the University of Massachusetts School of Law-Dartmouth is forging new ground by providing access to justice through legal education. The School has recently earned provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association (ABA), allowing graduates to sit for the bar in any state. Additionally, its affordable tuition has been frozen through the 2014-15 academic year.

The University of Massachusetts School of Law–Dartmouth has been provisionally approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association effective June 8, 2012. The Section of Legal Education may be contacted at 321 North Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60610, by fax to 312-988-5681, by phone at 312-988-6738, or by email:
