SHOW STUDENT DETAILS

BU Law has a distinguished faculty that includes 6 professors who previously served as U.S. Supreme Court clerks and 12 who have doctorates in areas such as economics, history and philosophy. Some students may be interested in knowing that “BU Law faculty use the ‘Socratic’ teaching method, so instead of lecturing to students, faculty encourage an interactive dialogue during class.” (BU Law Website)

When it comes to student life, there are more than 30 student organizations and 6 law journals. In addition, “opportunities for BU Law students include first-year section parties, coffee houses, Student Appreciation Days, holiday parties, pot-luck dinners, ski trips, social hours and an annual auction. A dynamic variety of social and athletic activities– yoga classes in the law tower, intramural hockey, ultimate Frisbee, ballroom dancing, and the ‘Let's Get Walking’ and ‘Live Well, Learn Well’ programs– are just a few of the many activities that help make BU Law a true community.” (BU Law Website) Boston itself has much to offer with its myriad of museums, live music performances, sporting events, theaters, restaurants, and beaches, including the beautiful shores of Cape Cod.

With respect to student housing, “BU Law students often rent apartments which are within walking distance to the School or accessible by public transportation. New students are provided with a roommate referral listing and a quick guide to neighborhoods and rental prices. Boston University owns and manages several rental properties for students in various neighborhoods, including a new graduate student apartment building on Commonwealth Avenue.” (BU Law Website)
