Law school can challenge students with intensive academics, but at BC Law, that challenge comes with unparalleled support and encouragement. Faculty, staff and alumni are all dedicated to helping students thrive, inside and out of the classroom.
Our professors mentor students personally and professionally, offering academic advice with an open-door policy, hosting extra-curricular activities, and helping them forge fulfilling career paths. Alumni connect with students over shared interests and placement opportunities. Students study and socialize together, share notes, and form lifelong friendships.
These bonds create a close-knit, inclusive community of more than 700 students, 13,000 alumni, and 50 student organizations.
“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 and notes with friends who miss class, and ultimately care and look out for one another. ”
