Boston University School of Law Reviews

4 reviews
BU has excellent faculty, a great facility, and a welcoming environment. While you can't escape competitiveness in law school, the cultivated atmosphere is one of helpfulness - in any way you may be struggling, you'll find peers, faculty, and staff ready to help. However, I wish there was more support from the administration for public interest students. Students in the field are left to lean on each other and select faculty members, while the school itself puts its resources into big law recruitment.

The stellar academics are a reflection of the stellar faculty. The first year curriculum consists of foundational legal principles, with many professors willing to go beyond the black letter law to provide a realistic understanding of the law. The courses offered for second and third year students cover common and unique areas of law, in addition to a wide range of experiential opportunities.
I like the building, I love the variety of journals and clinics, and the classes leave me feeling like I’ve truly learned something. However, I sometimes feel like a number to administration, and not always supported in my chosen career path.
