Center for Experiential Learning

Consistent with the mission of Boston College Law School to provide the highest quality integrated graduate and professional education, the Center for Experiential Learning provides a diverse set of experiential learning opportunities–in classroom, clinical, and other settings–designed to promote development of legal and ethical judgment and essential practice skills as students continue to expand their substantive knowledge base. In accord with the Jesuit, Catholic identity of Boston College, the Center advances a commitment to social and economic justice. Thus, the Center is an essential pillar in the Law School’s mission to support Boston College Law School students not merely in becoming excellent lawyers, but in living lives of excellence–seeking and finding meaningful work in service to others that will enrich their communities and the profession. As the Center catalyzes greater engagement with practice among Boston College law students and faculty, the Center’s activities will promote wider recognition in the legal academy of the role of Boston College as a thought leader in all facets of experiential pedagogy.
