We prepare our students to be practice-ready upon graduation. Our graduates find fulfilling positions in a variety of settings—law firms, corporate legal departments, non-profits, government agencies, and many more.
Our Career Services Office conducts over 2500 individual advising appointments and offers over 100 career-related programs each year, including career fundamentals and job search strategies for private and public sector jobs, clerkships and fellowships, and practice area exposure. These resources help students discern the career path right for them, develop practical skills, and discover potential employers. Our approach works: our employment rate is 92.7%, and 89.5% of our graduates acquire full-time, long-term, bar-passage required/JD advantage jobs (Class of 2019).

BC Law grads are in demand. Employers consistently report that our graduates bring a high level of emotional intelligence to their work, including sound judgment, diligence, and a "can-do" approach.
Our commitment to public service law begins with our Leaders Entering and Advancing Public Service Program (LEAPS), and supports BC Law graduates who work with local, state, and federal agencies and nonprofit organizations.
Our Pro Bono and Public Interest Designation Programs encourage students to engage in experiential learning opportunities, and our Loan Repayment and Assistance Program helps ease debt burdens for those who choose public interest careers.
Our students and graduates regularly land competitive clerkships. In the past five years, they have obtained more than 175 judicial clerkships at local and federal courts across the country.
Our Center for Experiential Learning places students as interns with judges in federal and state courts, and gives them a glimpse into the role of a law clerk.
“One reason for the successful growth of our Boston office has been the terrific hires we’ve made from BC Law, which includes half of the associates in our business department. BC-trained lawyers hit the ground running and are a great fit for our clients and firm.”
