School of Law

Welcome to Boston University School of Law, a top-tier law school with a rich tradition of inclusion and accomplishment.

BU Law has admitted qualified students regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity since the day we opened our doors in 1872. As a result, many of our alumni have been pioneers in law and society, making history with their accomplishments.

Today, BU Law is a dynamic community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni, united in the pursuit of excellence. You will find a spirit of collaboration here and the opportunity to learn in a challenging and collegial atmosphere.

You will study with renowned legal scholars who love to teach. The BU Law faculty is known for excellence in teaching.

You will learn practical legal skills in a wide range of civil and criminal law clinics, national and international externships, and pro bono placements, in addition to learning legal theory in class.

You will also have access to all the resources a major city has to offer—federal and state courts, the Massachusetts legislature, nongovernmental organizations, corporations, law firms of all sizes, cultural and historical offerings, major sporting events, and many other civic and social opportunities.
