Student services

For more information on student services and amenities, our Office of Student Affairs is the primary advocate and administrative liaison for the student body. The office is responsible for enhancing quality of life for students through support of student groups, accommodations for disabilities, assistance with ethical issues, academic advising, counseling, securing Law School services, and publishing resources for students.

Housing services

  • Providing convenient, affordable housing to students is a priority for Brooklyn Law School. We own and operate two student residences, including Feil Hall, a magnificent new high-rise building, which provides housing for approximately 360 students.
  • The Law School's two residences, all within a short walk from the campus, are located among the tree-lined streets of the landmark Brooklyn Heights Historic District one of the most beautiful urban residential communities in the country. Housing costs for Brooklyn Law School residences are below the market rate for apartments in New York City, especially those in such a desirable neighborhood as Brooklyn Heights.

Library services

Brooklyn Law School library is a member of the Federal Depository Library Program, serving as a selective depository for U.S. government documents. The BLS Library became a selective depository in 1974 and holds few government documents published prior to that date. At present, the Library selects less than 12% of available items from the Government Printing Office. 

ICT services

Brooklyn Law School maintains four computer labs in its Library on the lower level, and on floors 2M and 3. A limited number of laptop computers can be borrowed at the Library’s circulation desk for a period of up to four hours at a time. Library laptops cannot be taken out of the Library. 

Medical services

Our students can go see a local therapist for a free and confidential consultation. Students can find contact information to the therapists here. 

Students who carry the health insurance plan through the School have a low co-pay of only $10 or doctor and therapist appointments. We negotiated that low rate to make care accessible and affordable for our students.
