Get Involved with Students

Hundreds of NYLS alumni actively help those who are following in their footsteps.  Join their ranks in one (or more) of several ways:

  • Ask-an-Attorney: Students have access to a database of attorneys who have offered to speak with New York Law School students to discuss such topics as the attorney’s career path, résumés, cover letters, and practice area options.
  • Practice Area Forums: Attorneys from the same practice area are invited to campus to speak with students about that practice area in a table-talk style that fosters meeting many different people. Students come away with a heightened understanding of that practice area as well as a deeper sense of the different settings—law firm, in-house, government agency, public interest organization—where attorneys can practice that area of law.
  • Lunch with a Lawyer: Each week during the fall and spring semesters, attorneys in different practice areas host a lunch for eight to 10 students. These small lunch meetings offer students the opportunity to learn about a practice area and a meet a potential advisor in a more intimate setting.
