Boston College Law School (BC Law) is one of the six professional graduate schools at Boston College. Located approximately 1.5 miles from the main Boston College campus in Chestnut Hill, Boston College Law School is situated on a 40 acre (161874.3 m2) wooded campus in Newton, Massachusetts.

With approximately 800 students and 125 faculty members, the Law School is one of the largest of BC's seven graduate and professional schools. Admission to BC Law is among the most selective in the United States, with 18% of applicants being accepted in 2010. 29% of the students are AHANA. Reflecting its Jesuit heritage, BC Law has established programs in human rights, social justice and public interest law. Its faculty played a part in unsuccessfully arguing for the repeal of the Solomon Amendment, presenting oral arguments before the United States Supreme Court in Rumsfeld v. FAIR. Considered a highly prestigious American law school, BC Law graduates are highly recruited in New England.

Over the past several years BC Law graduates have received post-graduate fellowships in the public interest field, including the Skadden Fellowship, the Soros Justice Fellowship, and the NAPIL Equal Justice Works Fellowship. The Law School was listed by NAPIL as among the top 25 law schools for commitment to loan repayment assistance and easing student debt. BC Law currently provides over $260,000 each year in loan repayment assistance to graduates pursuing public interest careers, an increase of over 50% from prior years. BC Law has also consistently been ranked in the top five by US News in Most Collegial Law Schools, and the friendly atmosphere has led to name it the Disneyland of law schools. In 2007, the National Law Journal ranked BC Law in the top 15 schools based on law schools with the highest percentage of graduates hired by the top American law firms.
