Brooklyn Law School Policies & Reports
The following is the official and most recently updated list of Brooklyn Law School Policies and Procedures that clarify the Law School’s expectations, strive to improve efficiency and effectiveness, and support legal compliance. This list will be updated periodically as necessary and at the Law School’s discretion.
Although effort will be made to ensure that all reproductions of the policies on this list and on other pages of the Brooklyn Law School website or in Brooklyn Law School publications are the most current, this list prevails where there is a conflict. We hope you find this list convenient and helpful.

As required by the Jeanne Clery Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report for the Brooklyn Law School campus is available on the BLS website at www.brooklaw.edu/campussafetyreport.
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 campus. The report also contains 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 campus.

Department of Public Safety 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.
