The nature of a candidate’s college work, as well as the quality of academic performance, is taken into account in the selection process. However, Brooklyn Law School does not require applicants for admission to present college credit in any specialized subjects or any particular academic major. A broad, general education that includes a reasonable mastery of some chosen field of concentration is more valuable than specialized study in subject areas closely related to law. Such an education should include study in literature; in humanities, such as philosophy and logic; in social studies, such as economics, political thought and history; in science and mathematics; in foreign languages; and in creative expression and communication such as English composition and speech.
We strive to enroll a talented, diverse student body at BLS and you will find that philosophy reflected in the range of educational backgrounds represented in each class - typically some 55-60 academic concentrations are represented. The current student body includes a number of former teachers, journalists, engineers, scientists, doctors, nurses, accountants and business professionals.
