Alumni work in nearly every area of legal practice.
Where do BU Law grads practice? Everywhere. The National Law Journal ranks BU Law #12 for the number of alumni promoted to partner at the 100 largest law firms in 2016, and a recent Journal of Legal Education article ranks BU Law #12 for the number of partners within the NLJ Top 100 large law firms. Beyond “Big Law,” our alumni practice in small and medium sized firms across the nation, and outside law firms: they are elected federal and state officials, ambassadors, attorneys general, career federal and state prosecutors, business executives and entrepreneurs, federal and state judges and magistrates, and public interest attorneys in every imaginable area of the law. Our alumni litigate, make deals, enact policy, create and run businesses and social enterprises, provide legal advice for major companies as well as individual clients, legislate, and adjudicate. We have approximately 24,000 BU Law grads leading the way for our students.
