A native New Yorker, Jeff Glick looked for a law school with a strong reputation in Boston, New York and Washington D.C. His visit to the BC Law campus sealed the deal. “I was immediately impressed by the individual attention I received from the admissions staff,” he says. “I realized that this school cares about the students and is attentive to their needs.”
Although academically rigorous, Glick describes BC as a “relaxed and social atmosphere,” with an emphasis on community, scholarship, and cooperation. “If you want a place that fosters learning in an open and collaborative environment, this is it. Students study together, professors hold group office hours, people share materials and notes with friends who miss class, and ultimately care and look out for one another.”
The Law School’s Weinstein Scholar, Glick immediately got involved with the Law Students Association, serving as a 1L section representative and a 2L class representative. He is currently serving as vice president, as well as editor and member of the UCC Reporter Digest's executive board. “Our journals provide an outstanding opportunity for students to improve their writing and time management skills while also broadening their academic horizons,” he says.
Last summer Glick worked as a summer associate at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft in New York City, while the previous summer he was a legal intern for Major League Baseball, a job he landed through a BC Law alumni connection. “I learned first hand the strength and generosity of the BC network and the willingness of alumni to help students… my experience at BC Law has been great. The relationships and bonds I’ve formed have really guided me through law school and shaped my experience.”
