The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report for the Brooklyn Law School campus is available.

If you would like to receive a hard copy of any of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, you can request that a copy be mailed to you by sending an email to

As per NYS Education Law Article 129-A: The BLS Advisory Committee on Campus Safety will provide upon request all campus crime statistics as reported to the United States Department of Education. Student Affairs staff will perform this task on behalf of the Committee by providing the Annual Security and Fire Safety report to those individuals who request the crime statistics. Crime statistics can also be reviewed at the US Department of Education website at

The report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety including topics such as: crime prevention, crime reporting policies, fire safety, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security on each campus.  The reports contain crime statistics for the three previous calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by BLS; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from each campus.

This information is required by law and is provided by Brooklyn Law School.

  • Transfer candidates utilize the same application as used by candidates for first-year admission.

    Transfer applications are only accepted for fall admission. 

    Transfer applicants are not eligible to apply for the 2-Year J.D. Degree Program option.

    Transfer applicants may seek an Early Action decision by submitting an application as soon as fall grades earned at the prior law school are officially released. If admitted, such candidates for the next fall may be notified of their admission in early spring instead of needing to await mid-summer notification. Such Early Action offers remain subject to proof of commensurate academic performance and continued good standing during the entire first year at the prior law school. This option remains available until May 1. Thereafter, the Committee on Admissions will expect to see fall and spring semester grades before reaching any decision.

    In some cases, the Committee on Admissions may wait-list an Early Action transfer applicant, with later review subject to the receipt of final first-year grades.

    The Committee on Admissions continues to review transfer applications and make admission offers throughout the spring and summer until all spaces are filled.

    In addition to providing all of the information and documentation required of a first-year entering student, a transfer applicant is also required to provide: (1) a statement explaining his or her reasons for requesting admission to Brooklyn Law School; (2) a complete, official academic transcript from the prior law school indicating all coursework completed and grades received; (3) a letter from the dean's office of the prior law school attesting to the fact that the applicant is in good standing and eligible to continue matriculation at that school; (4) a Credential Assembly Service Law School Report newly issued by LSAC (Brooklyn Law School will not accept a copy of the Law School Report from the applicant's prior law school.). (5) Transfer candidates are required to submit at least two letters of recommendation; letters from faculty at the prior law school are most helpful, but not required.

    Normally, no action will be taken on a transfer application until all of the above documents have been submitted to the Office of Admissions.
