Room W220

Welcome to New York Law School’s in-house symposium, a day set aside for faculty and students to engage with each other in the process of creative and insightful work – from the application of lawyering skills to client needs to the writing of scholarly articles. You’ll have the chance to encounter a range of the perspectives of our faculty in the sessions today, but the name of the day – Faculty/Student Presentation Day – reflects our emphasis on the work of New York Law School’s students as well.

We hope you will join us for the day’s events. Come to the panels, but not just to hear your teachers and fellow students speak – as much as we expect you’ll enjoy that. Come ready to engage with them, to make comments and ask questions, so that this isn’t just a day of “no classes” but a day for insight, understanding and fun!

Theme: success in the practice of law involves a seamless integration of knowing and doing. In this year’s program we want to emphasize the dynamic nature of the learning process: collaboration, experiential learning, and learning how to learn are all crucial aspects of the law school experience.
