Basic Information

Brooklyn Law School is minutes away from the financial, legal, business and cultural crossroads of the world. Proximity to Wall Street gives students easy access to school-year externships and summer jobs with major law firms and financial institutions.

The school's Clinical Education Program is nationally renowned. The school was one of the early pioneers in legal education to create a program focused on training students to work on legal matters with real clients.

With over 20 clinics covering many different areas of specializations, Brooklyn Law strives to give student hands-on learning experiences that will help them build both their lawyering skills and their resumes. One example of their innovative approach to experiential learning is the Public Interest Public Service (PiPS) program, a two-year fellowship which encompasses students’ last year of law school and first post-graduate year. It is one way the school helps students get a strong foothold as they launch successful legal careers.

Brooklyn Law is expensive, but has given away more money than any other school in the nation in grants and scholarships. That has helped keep debt lower than other similarly priced schools.

"When I walk through our bustling hallways and hear all of the diverse voices coming from our classrooms,  I’m immensely proud of the legacy we continue to build upon at Brooklyn Law School," said Dean of Admissions Eulas Boyd. "Our students inspire us every day, and we put them first in everything we do here.”

Brooklyn Law is recognized among the country’s top law schools in supporting public interest law. The program has placed nearly 450 students in a wide array of summer internships, and public service grants award up to $5,000 per student to support public interest employment.
