    Student community


    The LL.M. Community

    LL.M. student life starts with the vibrant LL.M. student community.  The selectiveness of our program ensures that each student gets the necessary support unique to each student’s needs.  We also work hard to help our LL.M. students engage each other from the moment they arrive on campus in mid-August.  Events include a week-long orientation program at the beginning of the school year to a range of social events, symposia, court visits, and other outings throughout the year.  By the end of the year, our LL.M. students have become friends for life.

    Boston College Law School Community

    Our LL.M. program also integrates LL.M. students into the Boston College Law School Community.  LL.M. students and J.D. students have a common law school experience and view each other as colleagues. Each LL.M. student is paired with one or two J.D. student "buddies."  The student buddies introduce LL.M. students to life as a U.S. law school student.

    Boston College Law School enjoys a vibrant community of students, faculty, and visitors interested in international matters in particular. This includes several internationally oriented students organizations within Boston College Law School, and the Graduate International Student Association affiliated with the University's Office of International Students and Scholars. To enhance the experience, we offer an International Legal Studies Colloquium, a periodic gathering of students, faculty, and others for the discussion of ongoing work in the field.

    Boston College life

    LL.M. students' lives are enriched by the life of Boston College as a whole. Opportunities include the plays and concerts performed in the Robsham Theatre on the main campus; Saturday afternoon football games before a roaring home crowd in Alumni Stadium; exhibitions of world-renowned paintings and sculptures in the McMullen Museum of Art; and the dozens of other cultural, educational, and sporting events that take place in every part of the campus each week.

    A variety of the University's clubs and groups welcome graduate students, and the Campus Recreation (BC Rec) host a wide variety of recreational programs, including fitness, aquatics, outdoor adventures, intramurals, club sports, tennis, dance, and youth programs. Campus Recreation memberships include access to both the Flynn Recreation Complex and the Quonset Hut, a satellite facility located on the Newton Campus.



    Boston College Law School is only eight miles from downtown Boston and offers fast access to the city by car or public transit. The Boston legal community is wide and varied, a center for federal and state courts, law firms, government agencies and other legal institutions.  Boston is both the first city of New England and a premier center of education in the U.S. The city’s large student population has a noticeable influence on its atmosphere and activities as well as adds to Boston’s diversity. As a result, area campuses and community organizations offer various programs and events appealing to a wide range of interests and cultures.
