New York is the most dynamic city on earth. There has never
been a better place to learn and practice law than here. For more than 120
years, New York Law School has helped fuel this engine for the world with
its talented graduates and professors.
We established our roots in Lower Manhattan in 1891, and have remained an integral part of the City’s legal landscape ever since. Our location in the heart of the City’s legal, government, and financial districts provides students with unmatched opportunities to gain valuable practical experience and build the foundation for a meaningful and successful career. Simply put, New York Law School is a vibrant, diverse school that has given opportunities to countless students to reach their goals in every sector of the economy.
We have an extraordinary and innovative program that responds to the needs of the new generation of law students and bridges their hopes to a wide array of new careers for which a legal education is critical. Our graduates are doing some of the most important and cutting-edge legal work in New York City and beyond—as law firm partners, corporate leaders, high-ranking government officials, and judges.
There are common threads in every New York Law School story: the drive to serve others; the commitment to constantly improve, innovate, and redesign; the desire to reach beyond our most hopeful dreams; and the quest for continued knowledge and perfection. You will see these common threads in action—in the work of our academic centers; in the profiles of our alumni, students, faculty, and staff; and in the descriptions of our innovative educational program. This is New York. This is New York Law School!
