"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."

"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."

"Brooklyn Law School has an awesome location in downtown Brooklyn. Near Borough Hall and Jay St. Metrotech subways always students to get where they want to go with ease and opens up the whole city to your internship hunt. Feil Hall is a great place to live. Professors, as you might imagine, are very hit or miss. Do you relate to their thought processes, are you engaged with the same topics? If so, you will do well. If not, you may have a harder time in that class. At Brooklyn, the first year dictates much more of your experience than is normally claimed. For instance, first years who do well not only tend to get better internships but they are shoe-ins for clinics and journals which greatly expand your support system and make navigating the bureaucracy much easier. I know this because I did not get into my clinic until third year so I've experienced both sides of the coin."

"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."

"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."
