The Massachusetts School of Law
The Massachusetts School of Law ("MSL") started ACHLS in order to bring its successful educational techniques to undergraduate education.
Massachusetts School of Law, located in Andover, Massachusetts, is the most affordable of all New England law schools. The law school's mission is to make practical, affordable, high quality legal education, and resulting social and economic mobility, available to persons who have been traditionally excluded from the legal profession. Massachusetts School of Law employs the "medical school" model in its approach to legal education. Interested recent college graduates and working professionals learn to write and speak effectively, and to successfully advocate for clients. Of all the law schools in New England, MSLAW, places the most emphasis on the acquisition of the professional skills necessary to practice law immediately upon graduation. LSATs are not required for admission, as Massachusetts School of Law considers an applicant's entire record in selecting appropriate candidates to enter the legal profession.
MSLaw's continued success in nationwide mock trial competitions is a testament to both it's high level of teaching and its success in training its students to practice law at a far more effective level than most law schools in this country.
