Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Honors Program at New England Law | Boston, 2020: New England Law | Boston began in 1908 as Portia Law School, which offered a legal education exclusively to women at a time when most other institutions would not accept them at all. The early Portia Law School students were primarily from working-class and immigrant families and many had only high school education since the state did not require a college degree to study law. For decades, most of the women who passed the Massachusetts bar examination were Portia graduates.

The Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Honors Program at New England Law | Boston provides students with unique academic, advising, and extracurricular opportunities that can enrich their law school experience. Eligible honors students may also receive a full-tuition scholarship—worth more than $147,000 over the course of three years.

“The Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Honors Program at New England Law celebrates two legal ‘firsts,'” said Judith Greenberg, professor of law. “New England Law was founded in 1908 as Portia Law School—the nation’s only law school exclusively for women—and Justice O’Connor made history as the first female justice of the United States Supreme Court.”
