Schedule a Visit

An essential part of your decision on where to apply and enroll in law school is to visit the law schools you are considering. New York Law School invites prospective students to visit and experience our campus first-hand. Information sessions, campus and residence hall tours, class visitations, and meetings with faculty or administrators can be combined to tailor your visit to your needs and interests.

Information Sessions

These small group meetings are a great source for general information on the admission process, the academic program, financial assistance, and other opportunities, activities, and special programs available to New York Law School students. Each Information Session lasts approximately one hour and is presented by an admission officer. Sessions include time for questions and answers and the presenter is available following the session to address individual questions.  Advance registration of at least one week is requested.

Broad Student Center, Ernst Stiefel Room, Mendik Law Library, and classrooms.  All tours begin at the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, 44 Worth Street (between Church and West Broadway).  If you are not able to make our 1:00 p.m. tour, please contact our office so that we can schedule another time that is convenient for you.

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 25 through December 4.)

Contracts:  Monday, 9:00 a.m. – 10:40 a.m. and Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Residence Hall Tours

The New York Law School Residence Hall, located at 81 East 3rd Street, is situated in the vibrant and culturally rich East Village neighborhood of New York City.  The hall is just a few short blocks from the F and M lines of the New York City subway system, with a commute of just over twenty 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 steps away from the area’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 shared two- or three-bedroom unit. Each apartment is equipped with its own kitchen and a full, private bathroom.  The rent ranges from approximately $1460-$1900 per month, per person, and students will be required to enter into least term of approximately twelve months.

We invite those interested in learning more about the residence hall to take a guided tour of the facility. Below you will find a schedule of available tour dates and times. 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.
