All New York Law School students are welcome to affiliate with the Center for New York City Law.
Affiliated students participate in all areas of the Center’s programming—from writing its newsletters to assisting with events focused on governmental and political issues.
The Center assists students in obtaining internships and employment with governmental agencies. Graduate affiliates have been hired with many city agencies, including City Hall, the Law Department, the Mayor’s Office of Contracts, and the Office of Management and Budget.
In addition, each year, the Center appoints two members of the graduating class as CityLaw Fellows. Fellows work full-time at the Center, assisting in the writing and editing of CityLaw and CityLand and becoming deeply involved with New York City government and legal issues.
Apply to Join
All NYLS students are welcome to apply to join the Center as affiliates. Affiliates must meet curricular and extracurricular requirements, found on the Academics section of the NYLS Portal. Students may not join or transfer to the Center during their final semester of law school.
These courses are affiliated with the Center and likely to be of interest to affiliated students.
