Students are required to take one of their first-year core classes as a seminar, as well as to complete an upper-level writing requirement. There are no formal concentrations, and many classes are slanted to practical skills and learning the intricacies of the New York bar exam. BLS sponsors a JD/MBA program with Baruch College, as well as a JD/MS in city planning with Pratt Institute.
Brooklyn Law School's recent completion of new residence halls allows it to guarantee on-campus housing to all first-year students--a boon in New York's real estate market. Students in our surveys love the location (Brooklyn Heights) and report that school activities remain big draws, despite the nearby distractions of Manhattan.
