Suffolk University New England School of Art and Design

About Us
The New England School of Art & Design is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), the national accreditation agency for art and design. Our Interior Design BFA and Interior Architecture MA programs are accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), a specialized body recognized by the US Department of Education. Not every school that offers courses or programs in art and design is accredited and that’s important to consider when choosing where you’ll study. We are very proud to have earned these specialized accreditations, as doing so speaks to both the rigor and the caliber of the curricula and to the success of our alumni in their respective fields. Our programs go through a regular review and evaluation process performed by teams of art and design professionals and academicians from across the nation, who carefully examine the quality of the work being produced by our undergraduate and graduate students. During our most recent review periods we were pleased to receive the maximum length of re-accreditation by both NASAD and CIDA, which speaks volumes about the confidence both bodies have in our programs
In 1999, Suffolk University Law School moved to its new location at 120 Tremont Street in Boston, Massachusetts. The School is located in the heart of the City of Boston, near the historic Massachusetts State House and on the Boston Common. State and federal office buildings, courts, and law firms are located within walking distance of the School. A variety of transportation modes are available in the immediate vicinity.
The eight-story building houses a technologically advanced facility, with wireless access and hardwired ports in classrooms, the library, the dining room, lounges, and common areas. It occupies 297,000 square feet, including a three-story library, classrooms, moot court rooms, faculty offices, student activity areas, clinical and legal practice offices, administrative offices, and a host of other related spaces.
The Law School has twenty-one classrooms as well as one large and two smaller moot courtrooms. The size, room numbers, and seating capacities are listed in Attachment 1. All classrooms are state-of-the-art, featuring whiteboards, document projectors, overhead video projection, audio equipment, a computer in the teaching console, and wireless and data ports for laptop computer use by students.
The law library is housed on the 5th, 6th, and 7th floors of Sargent Hall. Entry is through one common entry way on the sixth floor. An internal circular staircase, as well as a library-only elevator, connects the fifth, sixth and seventh floors. The total square footage of the library is 96,700. There is currently 46,965 linear feet of shelving. Additionally there are 344 carrel seats, 536 non-carrel seats, thirteen small group study rooms, seven large group study rooms, three PC labs, and one seminar room. All 880 seats in the library have wired and wireless data ports for computer access to Westlaw, Lexis, a CD-ROM network, and the Internet. There also are a number of seats for viewing VHS and DVD video.
There are two large reading rooms with views out the bowed front of the building. There is a talking room where students can go to take a break from their studies. There are floor to ceiling window spaces on three sides of the library, with access to the terrace from the seventh floor for special functions. The library contains approximately 350,000 volumes and volume equivalents, including microfilm and microfiche.
Student organizations are centrally located on the fourth floor of the Law School. There are five honor board offices for the Journal of Health and Biomedical Law, the Journal of High Technology Law, Law Review, Moot Court and Transnational Law Review. A separate suite on the fourth floor houses the Student Bar Association and other student organizations. The suite consists of eleven private offices and a small conference room for use by any student group. Additional student activity space is located in the Library, as previously noted.

Our talented faculty are both teachers and scholars. Suffolk sets the standard for small class sizes, tight-knit departments, and faculty who cherish their mentoring role.
Exceptional faculty seek out Suffolk for its reputation, its committed student body, and its unsurpassed location in the heart of the world’s foremost intellectual community, Boston. They are thought leaders who conduct high-level research, publish books and articles, and advise multinational corporations and governments. But they’re never too busy for their students.

A Teacher-Scholar Model

Suffolk’s curriculum is based around research and experiential learning. Professors are crucial guides in this process. They’ll work with you to design a program of study that complements your academic and professional goals.
Our professors are committed to honing their expertise and finding new ways to connect with students. Suffolk’s Center for Teaching Excellence sponsors events, workshops, and research opportunities that help faculty sharpen the skills that make Suffolk stand apart.

Visiting Scholars

Suffolk draws renowned scholars and influencers to campus through our Distinguished Visiting Scholars Program. Each one arrives at Suffolk ready to share their wealth of expertise with students, faculty, and alumni. Recent scholars include National Book Award winner James Carroll; Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi; Mary Badham, the Oscar-nominated actress who played “Scout” in To Kill A Mockingbird; and The New Yorker writer Jeff Rosen.

Suffolk Law's Day Program enables students to study the law full time over the course of three years. The four-year Evening Program offers working professionals and non-traditional students the flexible alternative of part-time legal study. Many evening students have backgrounds in health care, high technology, financial services, and government fields. They bring experience, as well as cultural and generational diversity to the Suffolk Law community.
