Leaders in 21st-century experiential legal education

Recently voted by National Jurist Magazine (Fall 2018) as #1 in legal technology in the US, Suffolk Law has been praised for meeting the demands of today’s legal industry. The law school was described as an “innovative force” by  PreLaw Associate Editor Tyler Roberts in his article, How Suffolk Law is redefining practice-ready.

We focus on equipping our students with the skills and competencies they need to succeed in a shifting cultural and technological landscape. For the sixth consecutive year, the school’s Dispute Resolution program ranks among the Top 20 institutions by US News and World Report. It’s a trailblazing provider of practical mediation and negotiation classroom tools, working alongside the EU and US Department of Justice to create ground-breaking materials used by faculty across the nation. It is the only law school in the US with all 4 legal skills specialties in the top 20 for four years running (U.S. News & World Report 2020).

US News ranks Suffolk Law’s IP program 27th in the nation. Patent lawyers are fundamental to success in a tech-based economy like the one in Massachusetts - a globally-revered hub for ingenuity. In that respect, Suffolk Law is perfectly placed, fostering the most patent law partners in the state's largest IP practices — more than the next three competing law schools combined. Thirty percent of the top IP firm patent partners in Greater Boston are Suffolk Law graduates.

The Suffolk Law Difference

Suffolk is nestled in the heart of the city, surrounded by restaurants, theaters and historic sites. Directly across the street from Suffolk Law is Boston Common, a 50-acre green space and the perfect place to unwind between classes. At the top of the Common is the Massachusetts State House, and several of the law school’s study areas and classrooms look out over its iconic golden dome.

The city itself is welcoming to newcomers and easy to navigate, made up of many accessible neighborhoods, from historic Beacon Hill to Chinatown to the Italian North End. Boston is renowned for its universities, medical centers, and research programs. It’s also a place to have fun, with professional sports teams for each season, cultural institutions, historic landmarks, and multiple shopping districts.
