At the BU School of Law, we are indeed building on excellence! As a BU Law student, you can select from more than 200 different courses, concentrate in any of five focus areas, and cross-register for hundreds of other classes in BU’s other schools and graduate programs.
We offer 15 dual degrees, with students earning a JD and a master’s degree by combining law with other graduate programs; and 17 foreign study opportunities in 14 locations worldwide. Of key importance, you can engage every day with some of America’s most acclaimed legal scholars right here on campus.
Our graduates are governors, U.S. senators, state and federal judges, corporate leaders, diplomats, writers, distinguished teachers, and leading practitioners in nearly all legal specialties. In 2012, we were ranked third best in the nation in the Princeton Review’s The Best 168 Law Schools. Our School also got high praise for a “breadth of curricula that is matched by few other schools anywhere in the country.”
