In recognition of the important, impactful work Massachusetts School of Law at Andover does in breaking down barriers to education and its mission of working towards a more equitable society, Cummings Foundation has selected the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover as one of 140 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 to $500,000 each through Cummings Foundation’s $25 Million Grant Program. Massachusetts School of law at Andover was chosen from a total of 580 applicants during a competitive review process.

The grant will help support Massachusetts School of Law at Andover’s program offering needed professional skills to law students and businesspeople in the communities Massachusetts School of Law serves. Law has a significant impact on business formation and operation and the grant will help fund workshops, seminars, and full semester length courses integrating law and business. We anticipate that grant funds will support the business community’s need for accessible affordable legal information and the eventual approval of MSLAW providing a Master’s in Law and Business. This new endeavor will help businesspeople have a better understanding of the impact law has on business decisions while providing law students and lawyers a better appreciation for business issues.

As the most diverse and affordable law school in New England, Cummings Foundation support helps further our mission of helping to provide access to justice for all. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Bill and Joyce Cummings and Cummings Foundation and thank them for their extraordinary philanthropic efforts. They have our deep gratitude, respect, and appreciation for their efforts to help advance improved access to education and social justice. Thanks #CummingsGrant, @CummingsFoundation, @cummingsdotcom and @cummingsproperties from #MSLAW and @MSLAndover.
