Brooklyn Law School - Policies (2024)

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.

CAMPUS SECURITY

Annual Security and Fire Safety Report Notification

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.

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

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. 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. Crime statistics can also be reviewed at the US Department of Education website at http://ope.ed.gov/security.

Campus Hate Crime Statistics

New York State Education law requires Brooklyn Law School to post information about hate and bias crimes that have taken place on or around campus on its website. For this purpose, hate and bias crimes are defined by New York Penal Law § 485.05. In accordance with this requirement, and as reflected in the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, the following are statistics reflecting hate and bias crime incidents in the last three reporting periods:

September 1, 2020 – August 31, 2021: 0
September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2022: 0
September 1, 2022 – August 31, 2023: 0
