WHY BC LAW? BECAUSE THERE'S NO COMMUNITY QUITE LIKE OURS
file

BC LAW EMBRACES DIVERSITY AND COLLABORATION within a learning environment shaped from the Jesuit ideal of "cura personalis," or care for the individual. Our community encourages creativity and risk-taking. Our faculty, staff, and alumni develop mentoring relationships that change students’ lives. In short, we offer a support network that will last a lifetime--all of it rooted in our belief in educating “men and women for others.”

“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 with friends who miss class, and ultimately care and look out for one another.”

--Jeffrey Glick ’11

WHY BC LAW: «HOME

Students in Mone Courtyard
The Mone Courtyard is the heart of our 40-acre campus, minutes from Boston.
Our sheltered campus is just outside Boston:

“The benefits of the campus being in Newton is that it’s a peaceful environment to study but you can get downtown by car in 10 minutes and by bus in 30 minutes. You have great access to the nightlife and all the resources of Boston.”
