Diversity and Inclusion

Dear Prospective Students,

The decision to attend law school is one of the most important you will make. This decision is a first step toward a career as a lawyer and the beginning of a life-long commitment to the challenge of being a professional. As you sort through your educational options, I suggest that you evaluate each program to determine whether it will further your dreams in an environment that nurtures your individual and professional development.

New York Law School is proud of its unique history as a school of opportunity. As we enter our 125th year, NYLS has been serving new residents of our city, providing an intellectual home to working students and veterans, and seeking students from widely varying backgrounds to add depth and vigor to our community. We know that all students benefit by learning in a diverse environment that challenges, nurtures, and expands upon personal experience. Our students are activists, volunteers, and committed individuals with a taste to try new things. I invite you to explore NYLS’s programs and contact us to discuss the opportunities available here for you.

I hope to welcome you personally some day at the law school.

Good luck in your search.

Adam W. Barrett, Associate Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
