Suffolk University Law School's curriculum recognizes the importance of traditional common law principles and the evolving needs of a national and global economy.
Our mission is to prepare students to practice law in an ethical and professional manner and to use their legal skills often in combination with other professional training in business and government. Required courses involving common law and constitutional principles are balanced with a range of specialized elective courses enabling students to meet their own needs and to satisfy bar entry requirements. Traditional classroom teaching is complemented by emphasis on legal analysis and writing, counseling, negotiation, and advocacy skills. Students have the opportunity to learn the use of computer technology in our state-of-the-art classrooms. Clinical programs and internships are available to allow students to obtain practical experience.
The mission of the Law School is accomplished through both day and evening programs that maintain high academic quality with full-time faculty and adjunct instructors drawn from the leadership of the bench and bar.
