We'll inspire you to discover your passion:

“You never know what is going to catch your heart until you encounter it, and immigration did that for me. I find that I have great empathy for people who are suffering because I know a thing or two about working through difficult issues. My clients and I don’t necessarily share the same life experiences, but there is something about the experience of discovering joy and building character through seemingly hopeless situations that transcends borders.”

--Jennifer Barrow ’10

We'll help you land the job of your dreams:

“My BC law education gave me a skill set for a world I never envisioned: an international business career at Michelin.”

--James Micali ’73

“As a public defender, I represent poor people who don’t otherwise have the means to defend themselves. There is nothing I would rather be doing with my legal education. I was able to choose this career because of BC Law’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program."

--David Grimaldi ’07
