Brooklyn Law School

Founded in 1901, Brooklyn Law School offers a vibrant intellectual community emphasizing teaching excellence, leading-edge scholarship, and an innovative academic program designed to prepare students for public service, business, and private practice, nationwide and across the globe. Brooklyn Law School is an independent institution, unaffiliated with any university or college, and the only law school in Brooklyn. The Law School is uniquely located in an epicenter of entrepreneurship and innovation. The Brooklyn Tech Triangle (DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard) is the second-largest technology hub in the nation and a magnet for new business.

Brooklyn Law School offers students the J.D. 2-3-4 Program, with degree options that include an accelerated 2-year J.D. program, traditional 3-year program, and extended part-time 4-year program. The school’s clinical program was one of the first in the nation, and today is regarded as one of the finest and most comprehensive. The program offers students valuable opportunities to work with real clients on real cases and develop an extraordinary skill set in the process. Its clinics and externships extend the campus to hundreds of state and federal courthouses, government agencies, law offices, and businesses throughout New York City.

The Law School’s Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) is a hub for exploring legal issues surrounding entrepreneurship, and for providing effective legal representation and support for new commercial and not-for-profit businesses, while training the next generation of business lawyers to advise and participate in these sectors.
