The Brooklyn Law Campus is located at the junction of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District and downtown Brooklyn. Brooklyn law school boasts a location ideal for its legal, cultural, and historical character. Students share the area with federal and state judges, government officials, and private practice lawyers; many of whom are alumni. Within a few-block radius of the campus 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; the Kings County Surrogate’s Court; the New York City Civil and Criminal Courts; the Legal Aid Society; and numerous law firms and start-up companies. The location of the Brooklyn Law School is its laboratory, a backdrop for learning few schools can replicate.
Much of the campus overlooks New York Harbor and Lower Manhattan in a charming neighborhood, Brooklyn Heights, the first New York City neighborhood to be designated as a historic district. Many of students and faculty live in the residence hall or in private apartments and homes located on graceful, tree-lined streets. In Brooklyn Heights, many original townhouses, brownstone mansions, carriage houses, and churches recall old-world urban elegance. Nearby neighborhoods—Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Williamsburg, and DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass)—offer trendy, affordable housing coupled with bustling bistros, boutiques, galleries, and clubs. For all of these reasons GQ magazine has consistently cited Brooklyn as the “Coolest City on the Planet.”
