Robert Buchholz, Vol. 46 Editor-in-Chief

Class of 2012

Attorney Robert Buchholz is a 2012 graduate of New England Law | Boston and served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Volume 46 of the New England Law Review. After graduating from Saint Anselm College in 2006, Attorney Buchholz worked in New Hampshire state politics. If there was any doubt, his experience in the political arena taught him that “there is no substitute for hard work.” After graduating summa cum laude, Attorney Buchholz clerked for Justice Robert Cordy of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. He currently works in transactional law at Mintz Levin in Boston.

Attorney Buchholz credits some of his success to his New England Law Review membership: “Law Review was key” to making himself marketable and improving his legal skills. Attorney Buchholz’s current work “requires an obsessive attention to detail.” As any Law Review associate would likely explain, Law Review membership at New England Law | Boston requires a student to quickly learn complex technical editing skills. Attorney Buchholz believes these technical editing skills “are directly applicable” to his work in transactional law. Apart from the skills gained while on Law Review, Attorney Buchholz notes that the “best part of being on Law Review was the friendships” he formed with other members.

Attorney Buchholz explains to the eager 1L, as well as all other New England Law | Boston students: “My education at New England Law | Boston taught me that success is never handed to you—you have to earn it. The school provides lots of great opportunities for its students, but it is incumbent on the student to take an active approach to his or her education.” Law Review membership is one of those great opportunities.
