Boston College Law School

Class of 2018 - Snapshot 5251 Completed Applications 1508 Offers 29% Acceptance Rate 280 Enrolled Since its founding in 1929, Boston College Law School--one of the nation's premier Jesuit, Catholic legal institutions--has earned a national reputation for educational excellence and the highest standards of professionalism. Particularly striking is the spirit of community here. Though our students have varied backgrounds and represent more than 200 colleges and universities in the United States and in several foreign countries, they readily support one another in their learning. Diverse student groups also work together on common projects. One must see Boston College Law School to believe that so many people will give so much of themselves to create a community characterized by care and concern for others. Our students work hard, of course, but they find other students, faculty, staff and alumni mentors who help them through any rough patches.
