The New England Law Review was established in 1965 as the Portia Law Journal. When Portia Law School changed its name to New England School of Law in 1969, the Law Journal became the New England Law Review. The Law Review is a student-run organization and the flagship publication of New England Law | Boston.

The Law Review is comprised of legal scholarship by both professional and student authors. The goals of the publication are to enhance the legal discourse and provide a useful research tool for practicing attorneys. The Law Review fosters the personal development of its members as both scholars and prospective attorneys to ensure that each member may enjoy a lifetime of honorable and professional service within the legal community.

New England Law Review’s editorial offices are located at 154 Stuart Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116-5312.

Offer of Proof

Once a part of the New England Journal on Criminal and Civil Confinement, Offer of Proof is the online criminal component to the New England Law Review. All Offer of Proof content is separate and distinct from that published in the print volumes. Offer of Proof was vastly restructured by the members of the Volume 51 Editorial Board, and it is an online extension of the Law Review’s print content: it features original works, unique legal commentaries, and responses to articles printed in the Law Review. The structure of Offer of Proof allows the Law Review to publish content that may not lend itself to the typical constraints of the print format, while at the same time providing a forum for a more timely and effective response.

The New England Law Review is published exclusively by students at New England Law | Boston.
