BC Law 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. Boston is a center for federal and state courts, law firms, government agencies and other fine legal institutions, as well as a hotbed of technology and biotech firms. The "innovation economy" is booming here.

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.
