Housing

All full-time students accepted into the Brooklyn Law School LL.M. program will have the option of living in Feil Hall, a modern high-rise building completed in 2005. Feil Hall is home to 239 beautiful, furnished living spaces, from studios to four-bedroom apartments, where LL.M. and J.D. students live, study, and learn.

Feil Hall is also the location of the Jeffrey D. Forchelli Conference Center, the site of frequent academic symposia, and Geraldo’s, a comfortable café that hosts various programs of interest to BLS students and is a perfect location for meeting friends. The residence hall is located just three blocks from the Law School’s main building.

The costs for Brooklyn Law School housing are highly competitive for apartments in New York City, especially those in the immediate vicinity of the Law School and the desirable neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights.


Club & Society

There are more than 40 student organizations within the Law School, representing a variety of practice areas and cultural groups. Members develop substantive and informative student programs throughout the school year, as well as organize school-wide social events.


Leisure activities

Situated at the junction of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the Brooklyn Civic Center, and downtown Brooklyn, our school boasts a location unrivaled for its legal, cultural, and historical character. Within a few blocks of the school are the US District Court; US Bankruptcy Court; US Attorney’s Office; the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division; Family Court; the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office; the Kings County Surrogate’s Court; the New York City Civil and Criminal Courts; the Legal Aid Society; and numerous law firms. These are our laboratories and provide a rich backdrop for learning that few schools can replicate.

Multibillion-dollar construction projects have recast Brooklyn as the new center of New York City’s energy. Overlooking New York Harbor and lower Manhattan lies Brooklyn’s most charming neighborhood, Brooklyn Heights, where you will find much of our campus. The first New York City neighborhood to be designated a historic district, the Heights is famous for its 19th-century townhouses, brownstone mansions, carriage houses, and churches. Many of our students and faculty live here in our two residence halls or in private apartments and homes located on graceful, tree-lined streets. Nearby neighborhoods—Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Williamsburg, and DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass)—offer a profusion of bistros, boutiques, galleries, and clubs, all contributing to Brooklyn’s growing reputation as the hippest part of New York City.

Manhattan—the financial, legal, business, and cultural crossroads of the world—is only minutes away. Our students can take advantage of the exciting theater district, shopping, museums, and restaurants, as well as Manhattan’s never-abating intensity. Proximity to Wall Street also gives students easy access to major law firms and financial institutions.

All in all, we enjoy the best conceivable location for a law school.
