Class Visits

There is no better way to immerse yourself in the NYLS experience than by sitting in on a real NYLS class, taught by real NYLS professors.  Fortunately, even before you apply, you have the opportunity to do just that.  The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, along with NYLS’s first-rate faculty, invites both prospective and newly admitted students to schedule a class visit.  These visits allow you to see what it’s like to be a first-year law school student and provide a small preview of what makes NYLS “New York’s Law School.”  Please refer to the class visit schedule below to find out the days, times, and courses available for class visits during this fall semester (August 24 through December 04.)

Residence Hall

The New York Law School Residence Hall is located inside the beautifully renovated, historic St. George Hotel, in the Brooklyn Heights section of Brooklyn. The hall is conveniently located by the 2 and 3 subway lines of the New York City subway system, with a commute of approximately 15 minutes to the New York Law School campus. Students will also have access to ample taxi service and city bus lines to meet all of their transportation needs. Although the residence hall is only blocks away from the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and Downtown Brooklyn’s most popular shopping, dining, and entertainment hotspots, within its walls there is a peaceful and study-friendly atmosphere for those looking to focus on their academic work.

The residence hall offers students apartment-style living, with each student being assigned to a single bedroom unit. Each apartment is equipped with its own private bathroom and includes electricity, cable, internet, and local telephone calls with the rent. Students will be required to enter into a lease term of approximately twelve months.

We invite those interested in learning more about the residence hall to take a virtual tour of the facility by clicking the tab on the left. You may also participate in a guided tour of the facility. We ask that all those interested in touring the residence hall email housing@nyls.edu to confirm the date and time they would like a tour.

Please note that ALL tours must be confirmed in advance.
