New England School of Law (Campus History: Massachusetts)
With an impressive record of education, scholarship, and activity in social justice and public service—through its work aiding immigrants and refugees and groundbreaking research in areas such as environmental law and juvenile justice—BC Law continues to prepare students not only to be good lawyers, but to lead good lives. Boston College Law School is committed to the highest quality integrated graduate and professional education, recognizing its obligations as a national law school both to the academic and professional worlds.
Our commitment is to foster new insights through research and scholarship, to impart knowledge and analytical skills through instruction of the highest caliber, and to critically evaluate the role of law and legal institutions. We are also committed to developing those qualities and skills that our students will need to become successful practitioners; toward this end, we search for ways to combine theory and practice in our instruction, and for opportunities to instill in our students the moral and ethical values that underlie a rational and just application of law.
Boston College and its law school are rooted in the Jesuit tradition of service to God and others. In that tradition, we believe that the purpose of higher education is both the search for knowledge and the preparation of women and men who are moved to a constructive, responsible, and loving use of their knowledge.
The Law School recognizes its commitment to social and economic justice, and strives to advance this commitment both through its curricular offerings and in the extracurricular projects that it supports. UMass Law is the only public law school in Massachusetts.
