Profiles

featured faculty and alumni

There are many measures of success. Statistics can measure and compare numbers--applications, LSAT scores and GPAs, employment percentages. But people are the heart and soul of any school, and we at Boston College Law School believe that our success can best be measured by their success. Our students are some of the most talented in the world; our faculty members are, simply put, brilliant teachers and scholars. Our administration is dedicated to helping provide the best legal education available. And our alumni--some 12,000 strong--have achieved the highest positions of leadership throughout the United States, not only in law firms, but also in business, government, the judiciary and non-profit sectors.

We're proud of our people, and we believe their stories are compelling. Take a moment to browse through our profiles of faculty and alumni, and we think you'll agree: there is no better way to introduce you to the heart and soul of BC Law.
