    Brooklyn Law School’s Business Boot Camp was the focus of a New York Times feature article that examined the innovative ways laws schools are better equipping students for a changing job market.

    Students in Business Boot Camp spend three and a half days over winter break “learning about accounting principles, reading financial statements, valuing assets and other basics of the business world — subjects that not long ago were thought to have no place in classic law school education,” according to the article.

    “The programs law firms offer are very specific, but our program covers a broad diversity of topics, following a business from its inception, through various phases, including franchising and purchasing an overseas business,” said John P. Oswald ’84, who has funded the program for three years.

    Dean Nick Allard and BLS student Ricky Liang '15 are also quoted.
