The Journey Begins (again, for some)

To the Class of 2016-welcome to law school!  And welcome back Classes of 2014 and 2015! With the perennial arrival of new sod on the BU Beach, school is officially starting.  And you begin to think of yourself as a 1L, or (again, after a summer’s reprieve) a 2L or 3L.  We’re well on our way to a new building addition, set to open in fall 2014.  And we welcome new full-time faculty members Paul Gugliuzza and Naomi Mann to the BU Law community.

We continue to expand curricular opportunities for students, such as new 6 semester dual-degree programs in Law and Taxation and Law and Banking and Financial Law offered with BU Law’s Graduate Tax Program and Graduate Program in Banking & Financial Law.  Accepted students can now earn a JD and LL.M. (master’s degree) in just six semesters wtih no extra tuition for the LL.M.  Students can apply after first year of law school.

There’s a lot to be excited about in the classroom this year.  But don’t forget about life outside of class! As you gear up for the new semester, we encourage you to get involved with our student organizations  and attend their events.  The dedicated students who run these organizations put together a lot of fun and meaningful programs!  This is a great way to meet students with common interests.  For a preview of some of this year’s active student organizations, check out the following slideshow.   Stay tuned for e-mails about initial meetings.

Finally, as you get (back) into the swing of things, remember that Student Affairs is always here to help!

Best, Associate Dean Chris Marx, Jill Collins, Brenda Hernandez and Kelly Sullivan
