On-Campus Admissions Events/Schedule a Visit

All of us at New York Law School (NYLS) are eager to meet you! Therefore, we encourage you to visit our state-of-the art facilities located in the heart of Manhattan’s TriBeCa district. Throughout the academic year the Admissions and Financial Aid office will be hosting several on- and off-campus events. This will be an opportunity for you to experience NYLS first-hand. Events will include a tour of the campus, a visit with a first-year class, discussions with our current students, and meetings with some of our distinguished faculty.

Open Houses

Think BIG: Discussions on Business, Intellectual Property, and Government and Public Interest Law

Learn how New York Law School can power your legal career in today’s high-growth fields: business and financial services; intellectual property, media, technology, and applied sciences; and government and public interest law. The event will be held Wednesday, December 7, 2016 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Follow your interests by attending a panel on the career pathway you want—or explore multiple panels. Each panel will feature successful NYLS alumni and will be moderated by prominent faculty. Prospective students and their guests are welcome. To RSVP, please click here.

Campus Tours

Guided campus tours of New York Law School are offered Monday thru Friday at 1:00 p.m. The tours are usually led by a Student Ambassador or an Admissions Advisor, and include our new facility at 185 West Broadway, the Joseph Plumeri Center for Social Justice and Economic Opportunity, the Mendik Law Library, and classrooms. All tours begin at the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. We also offer limited tours on weekends, by appointment only. Please call our office to secure your place with one of our tours.

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 for the days, times, and courses available for class visits during this Spring semester (January 30 through April 20.)

Criminal Law: Monday and Wednesday, 6:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.

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.
