The Incoming Student Experience

The Incoming Student Experience

We are here to help you get ready for your time at BC Law.

Orientation activities, typcially held at the end of August, are meant to help you meet your fellow classmates, learn about the resources, programs, and support staff available to you, and begin to gain substantive experience about what it means to study and practice law. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, that process will look quite different this year. Over the course of the summer, we will be mixing in a number of live and pre-recorded virtual events, online learning modules and "get to know each other" virtual sessions. Our goal is to provide you with everything you need, while ensuring the health and safety of our community and adhering to Massachusetts state guidelines. 

We will be adding to this website frequently. Please check back and monitor your email for updates.
