Develop Professionally From Day One
Academic planning and professional development are seamlessly integrated at NYLS. Every evening student works with a counselor to discuss class schedules, set career goals, explore internship and post-graduation opportunities, and address individual advising questions. In addition, NYLS’s Evening Division Coordinator is a one-stop resource for all evening students.
NYLS strongly encourages and supports relationship building. The School works with organizations that offer flexible externship and pro bono opportunities geared towards evening students. Career panels, lectures, and networking events are frequently offered in the evenings.
