Though Brooklyn Law School began small, it did not stay small for long; few great things do. After several moves, each one to a larger location, the school finally found its current home at 250 Joralemon Street. Today, the school is proud to offer a large curriculum with close to two-hundred and fifty courses and seventeen areas of concentration. Their library is equipped with a half million volumes, three reading rooms, thirty conference rooms, and lounge areas. Students truly have the world at their fingertips as they move forward in their legal educations.
The stellar faculty is made up of leaders and respected authorities in their various fields. The school offers courses in every every aspect of the law. Brooklyn Law School even offers interdisciplinary instruction in emerging fields such as the application of new technologies to legal concepts. Boasting of a faculty that has produced twenty-six articles published in twenty-five top law reviews, Brooklyn Law School is even prouder to tell you that their faculty is ''approachable, so you can establish a bond with a mentor who will see you through law school and beyond.''
BLS's Centers of Excellence make them ''a hub of intellectual inquiry.'' Included in the Centers of Excellence are the Brooklyn Law School Library, the Dennis J. Block
Center for International Business Law, the Interdisciplinary Center for Health, Science, and Public Policy, and their unique Center for the Study of Law, Language, and Cognition. What makes that particular center so unique is that it is the only one of its kind in the nation. There, they explore developments in the cognitive sciences and how the applications of those sciences apply to their own field of study.
Sitting on a beautiful campus, Brooklyn Law School is only blocks away from the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division and Family Court. Just as close are the Federal District Court, the Federal Bankruptcy Court, U.S. Attorney's Office, the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office, the New City Surrogate's, Civil, and Criminal Courts, the Legal Aid Society, not to mention a vast number of law firms. Brooklyn Law School guarantees housing for all entering students.

Harrison Barnes is the legal profession's mentor and may be the only person in your legal career who will tell you why you are not reaching your full potential and what you really need to do to grow as an attorney--regardless of how much it hurts. If you prefer truth to stagnation, growth to comfort, and actionable ideas instead of fluffy concepts, you and Harrison will get along just fine. If, however, you want to stay where you are, talk about your past successes, and feel comfortable, Harrison is not for you.
Truly great mentors are like parents, doctors, therapists, spiritual figures, and others because in order to help you they need to expose you to pain and expose your weaknesses. But suppose you act on the advice and pain created by a mentor. In that case, you will become better: a better attorney, better employees, a better boss, know where you are going, and appreciate where you have been--you will hopefully also become a happier and better person. As you learn from Harrison, he hopes he will become your mentor.
