Faculty Pages

All Massachusetts School of Law full-time professors have offices in the school library. Students are encouraged to email or call professors in advance in order to schedule personal appointments. However, the school honors an open-door policy, and students may come by when the door is open to ask class-related questions. This allows for a personal and intellectually engaging environment that makes Massachusetts School of Law at Andover a place both students and faculty want to be.
