The Financial Services Law Institute is the Center for Business and Financial Law's project that focuses on the law and regulation of all aspects of the financial industry, including banks, broker-dealers, and investment funds.

New York Law School also offers an LL.M. degree in financial services law for students or practitioners interested in enhancing their speciality. With the Professor's permission, a J.D. student can audit and perform the required work for any of the LL.M courses, and then register for a 2 credit Independent Study Paper course based upon the LL.M. class they are auditing.
The Financial Services Law Institute also sponsors a wide variety of events led by senior practitioners and regulatory officials.
Student projects in the financial services area include Financial Law Updates and the FINRA arbitration award database (which will be online in early 2013).
Externships with financial institutions and regulatory agencies are avilable through Professor Filler's Financial Services Seminar & Workshop.
