In 1869, three Boston businessmen with abolitionist ideals chartered Boston University, envisioning an inclusive, forward-thinking university. In 1872, the School of Law opened its doors, admitting qualified students regardless of race, gender, or religion. Numerous legal and societal pioneers have emerged over the years. Today, under the leadership of Dean Angela Onwuachi-Willig, the School of Law continues to strive to meet that promise of an inclusive and equitable culture, and is home to more than 1,100  students and more than 160 faculty members.

Located in the heart of Boston and housed in the architecturally distinctive Sumner M. Redstone Building and Law Tower, our central facility features two modern law libraries, technologically advanced moot courtrooms, classrooms designed for optimal learning, and offices for faculty and administrative departments. We’d love for you to stop by and check us out!
