boston college law school

Boston College Law School is only eight miles from downtown Boston and offers fast access to the city by car or public transit. The Boston legal community is wide and varied, a center for federal and state courts, law firms, government agencies and other fine legal institutions. The home of many colleges and universities, Boston is both the first city of New England and a premier "college town," with students having a noticeable influence on its atmosphere and activities. The city’s large student population also adds to Boston’s diversity. As a result, programs and events appealing to a wide range of interests and cultures are available on area campuses and through community organizations.
