About the founding Schools
The Dickson Poon School of Law at King's College London is one of the
oldest law schools in England and recognised globally as one of the best law
schools in the world - ranking in the top 10 in the UK and 16th worldwide.
The School was established in 1831, and has played an integral role in the
life of King's College London since the College was formed almost 200
years ago. It has one of this country's most distinguished research and
teaching reputations - staff are active in research and among the leading
international experts. This helps us to continue to push the boundaries of
academic thought and to innovate across disciplines.
The School is based in Somerset House East Wing, which was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in February
The School was renamed after the £20m donation from Mr Dickson Poon CBE, the Hong Kong based British
philanthropist. Mr Dickson Poon's £20m donation to the Law School, the largest in the College's history and
believed to be the biggest ever to a British or European law faculty, is part of a £40m transformation project for
the School which aims to further its reputation as one of the top law schools in the world and setting new
standards in legal education and research. This has allowed the School, among other exciting projects, to
launch the largest scholarship programme for law in Europe offering up to 75 scholarships worth £18,000 to
£36,000 annually to the brightest and best new law students.
Educating Lawyers Who Lead Good Lives
Since its founding in 1929, Boston College Law School has earned a national
reputation for the highest standards of excellence and professionalism. Grounded in
the centuries-old Jesuit tradition, the School strives to inspire students; to push the
limits of their imagination and creativity; to encourage them to use their legal skills
to benefit society; and to help them find their greatest passion within the law.
A US News top 10 ’Best Value’ law school, BC Law has also been recognized by
National Law Journal as one of the ‘top 20 schools where large law firms recruit,’ ranked 19th on '50 Best Law
Schools' List by Business Insider, and was #1 for producing the most 'Super Lawyers' in New England (Super
Lawyer Magazine). The best measure of a school’s reputation is in the success of its alumni. BC Law's more
than 12,000 graduates have achieved important positions of leadership throughout the United States and
abroad, not only in law firms, but also in business, government, the judiciary and non-profit sectors.
BC Law offers students the combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills they need to succeed as
lawyers today. The School's experiential learning programs are recognized as among the best in the country
and its advocacy teams continue to win numerous awards. But the real strength of the program is in its people.
BC Law's outstanding faculty and talented student body work together in an exciting and collaborative
learning environment. At BC Law, students become professionals prepared to meet the many challenges of an
exciting and rewarding legal career.
