About

Outstanding lawyers need cutting-edge practical skills to succeed in a rapidly changing world. The Juris Doctor program of Suffolk University takes this training seriously: we're the only school in the country that has had four top-20 ranked legal skills specialties—clinics, dispute resolution, legal writing, and trial advocacy—in U.S. News & World Report for five years in a row.

Overview

About the Program

Suffolk Law also prepares students with 21st-century knowledge and skills. PreLaw Magazine lists Suffolk among its "Top 20 Most Innovative Law Schools," and the National Jurist Magazine recently listed Suffolk Law as having the top legal tech program in the country. The school's willingness to try new approaches matters. In our clinics and classrooms, students have learning opportunities that aren't available everywhere--like our clinics in IP and Entrepreneurship and Supreme Court advocacy; our working, on-campus law firm run by students; the Legal Innovation & Technology Lab; and an accelerated JD program for students looking to finish up more quickly.

In an era that requires increasing specialization, Suffolk Law offers multiple academic concentrations and areas of focus, coupled with real-world opportunities through clinical programs and internships, and the professional coaching needed for a transformative educational experience.

The Juris Doctor program of Suffolk University meets the educational requirements qualifying graduates to sit for the bar exam in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
