Boston College Law School

Since our founding in 1929, Boston College Law School has earned an international reputation for educational excellence and the highest standards of professionalism. The school is among the top few law schools in the U.S. in the number of applications it receives, and has an overall applicant-to-acceptance ratio that is among the most selective in the nation.

Our faculty includes authors of casebooks--in tax, environmental law, and civil procedure, to name a few--and other major academic books. Authors of articles too numerous to count, published in the country's leading law reviews. A former President of the International Society of Family Law. A Special Advisor to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Twelve members of the American Law Institute, the U.S.'s premier law reform organization. Advisors to governments and NGOs around the world. As importantly, though, our faculty are extraordinary teachers as well as scholars. Indeed, their primary mission is to mentor and teach our students, and they do it well.

Is Boston College the right school for you? Only you can answer that question, but here's what we think is special about our school. It is not simply our faculty, as wonderful as they are.
