Business of Law Institute
The Business of Law Institute prepares students and lawyers to meet the evolving needs of 21st-century businesses, law firms, and government agencies.
The Institute’s offerings include courses, hands-on training opportunities, and extracurricular learning labs related to risk and compliance, privacy, cybersecurity, blockchain, artificial intelligence, e-discovery, and similar fields.
The Institute consults with industry experts to develop curricular and extracurricular experiential course offerings to train New York Law School students to be effective practitioners in the business of law; to build a pipeline of jobs for students who are interested in the intersection of law and technology, especially in the corporate legal counsel space; to provide Evening Division students with specialized training as part of their J.D. studies; and to bring the entire NYLS community together to harness the technologies most relevant to preparing students for the modern profession.
The Institute’s programming is based on a comprehensive market research study commissioned by NYLS. The study includes substantial insights from more than 100 leaders at law firms and corporate law departments.
