Suffolk Law School

For more than 100 years, Suffolk Law graduates have achieved extraordinary professional success. You can find our 24,000 alumni practicing in firms of all sizes, from Wall Street to Main Street.

Suffolk Law graduates are leaders in state and federal government; they are general counsel of global companies; they are judges, prosecutors, and criminal defense lawyers; and they make a social impact through a wide range of other public interest and public service careers. Many use their degrees to succeed in related fields, such as business, education, and finance. In fact, Suffolk Law alumni have made an impact across a number of industries.

This kind of success begins with a world-class legal education in the heart of Boston, where students learn essential law practice skills in our nationally ranked programs. We are the only law school in the country with four top-35 ranked legal skills specialties–clinics, dispute resolution, legal writing, and trial advocacy–in U.S. News & World Report for nine years in a row (2017-25 editions). And Suffolk Law is consistently ranked among a handful of the most innovative schools in the nation. Bloomberg Law has named the school a top innovator for two years running (Top 12 in 2024, Top 10 in 2023). Whether it comes to traditional practice skills or the skills that lawyers need to succeed in the 21st century, Suffolk Law is a leader.
