Co-Curricular Programs

One of the most valuable ways that students learn is by working with other students. New York Law School’s co-curricular programs offer you the chance to learn law, legal research, legal writing, oral advocacy, dispute resolution, and trial skills. Each of these programs has a faculty advisor or advisors who are closely involved with your work, and at the same time each also calls on you to focus on these issues with your peers—to learn from them and in turn to teach others. Working with your peers, moreover, is more than just a way of learning the skills that are the direct focus of the program; it’s also an opportunity to practice collaborative work and leadership, general-purpose skills that are likely to be very important in the world of practice that you will soon enter. New York Law School offers four co-curricular programs, each with its own distinctive focus and each with its own selection process. We invite you to look into them further:
