The Center involves New York Law School students in all phases of the
Center's programing, from writing, researching and publishing its
newsletters to hosting and attending events. Students draft items for the
Center's publications, assist in managing the Web site, help plan and run
Center events, and have special opportunities to attend meetings on
governmental and political issues.
The Center assists students in obtaining internships and employment with governmental agencies. Students who have worked with the Center have found permanent jobs with many City agencies including City Hall, the Law Department, the Mayor's Office of Contracts and the Office of Management and Budget.
The Law School's Harlan Scholars Program provides additional ways for a student to engage with the work of the Center. Harlan Scholars participate in all Center activities, qualify for upper class courses in related legal topics, and have the opportunity to produce a major research project on urban law under the guidance of the Center.
Each year the Center appoints two members of the graduating class as a one-year Fellow in New York City Law.
