As one of the largest law schools in the nation, its 23,000 alumni provide key internship and clinical experiences. The school is one of just a few in the nation that places more than 100 students in judicial internships during the summer after their first year.

The school has embraced the rapidly growing area of legal technology and placed among the top 10 for law tech programs in the ABA's Law Practice Today. Suffolk Law’s Intellectual Property program also regularly shows up among the nation’s top programs for its breadth and depth.
