Boston University School of Law's greatest asset is its faculty. The faculty are, of course, wonderful scholars in their own right, but each is absolutely dedicated to teaching and students. They continually look for ways to get to know students - through lunches, panels, informal gatherings, school events, etc. This is a student-centered academic experience, but that doesn't mean it lacks rigor. Professors vary in style - I had professors who were purely Socratic and professors who operated wholly on volunteers. I participated int he criminal clinic which offers experience in both defense and prosecution (which is fairly unusual). I also had the invaluable experience of being a professor's research assistant for 1.5 years. The public interest community is robust and growing!
