Not only are BU Law faculty members dedicated to shaping future legal minds, they command respect as leading scholars across numerous fields of law—from Civil Rights, Constitutional Law, and Cybersecurity to Criminal, Housing, and Intellectual Property, the list goes on.

Our professors and instructors publish scholarly work in respected academic presses and research papers in esteemed law journals. You can explore some of their work on Scholarly Commons at BU Law. They also contribute to legislative, judicial, and policy-making decisions in the US and abroad, and lecture at conferences and law schools around the world.

In addition, we regularly bring to campus the experience and insights of professors from other law schools. At BU Law, there is no shortage of knowledge to gain and legal minds to spark inspiration.
