Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law & Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a student at Brooklyn Law School. My experience since moving to NY to go to law school has been mostly good. BLS offers many programs and ways for students to get pro bono experience, community involvement, and career development opportunities. The classes are great as are most professors. The job opportunities you will receive are just as good as any Ivy League if you stay in the top of your class, but the tuition is substantially less. It is important as a student to stay on top of your career path, however, because the career office is probably the weakest point of the school.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2020

I am an entering law student this year. I have already visited the school on multiple occasions and met most of the BLS staff. Brooklyn Law provides multiple opportunities for entering students to visit the campus prior to beginning their first semester which is extremely helpful for any first year student. The school holds events for entering students to learn about the opportunities offered. During these events students get to tour the campus, met alumni, and learn about curriculum options available. Staff are very helpful and answer student questions in a timely manner over email and in person. The school location is great since it is near numerous law firms and courthouses allowing students to network easily while attending. Although the school is a bit pricey, Brooklyn Law does offer financial assistance to their students through grants and scholarships. What attracted me most to the school is the trial advocacy programs, which many law schools lack, and the great reputation Brooklyn Law has withheld for continuous years. I am excited to begin attending classes and see what the professors will be like.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: School is located at the center of the legal field, with federal, state, and local agencies being walking distance away from the campus. BLS has beautiful housing and guarantees housing to all entering students. The professors are masters in their respective fields and are very passionate about their subjects. Cons: performance of the school's career center has been lacking, which has possibly led to poor ranking of the school in the latest law school ranks. The tuition and cost of living are very expensive for a school of its rank.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Brooklyn Law is located right in downtown Brooklyn close to transportation and internship opportunities. Being in New York is very pricey to live, but the school does have university owned housing.
