New York Law School was not originally my top choice law school, but it became my top choice after touring the school and talking to a 3L. NYLS thinks of everything and makes you feel comfortable from Day 1. They offer several research sessions a week in the library which help 1Ls to immediately obtain tips for research and gain confidence for writing memos, briefs, etc. The law school is very tech savvy and always makes sure that students are aware of job opportunities, course offerings, and beyond.

Although not ranked at the top of the best Law Schools in the country, New York Law School's educational system would not lose, in a fair fight, with schools higher up. Given its location in the center of Tribeca, NYLS students have access to a wide variety of professionals as well as the court houses for the Southern District. When it comes to getting your Juris Doctor, it is important to do well and that is what you will do at New York Law School, for a far cheaper price than an Ivy League law school.

Like any law school, New York Law is highly competitive especially in your 1st year. This can be both a pro and a con as it helps you work to stand out and succeed. Although it may be difficult, the harder and smarter you work, the less likely you will suffer problems. New York Law has many benefits including connections and helpful and experienced faculty who are willing to make time and answer any question related to the field of law.

I think the school is best for part-time students who have clear ideas about what they want with a degree in law. There are so many events and opportunities to network that will guide you to the path you want to practice. I do not believe that the full-time students get the same bang for the buck because the school's generation reputation is not that great. The school is very new, clean, and the staff are very helpful.

I think this is a great school with great programs. They have had some trouble with rankings, but I do believe the Dean and other faculty members are working hard to resolve this. The schools gives students a lot of support emotionally, financially and academically. I am very very happy I picked NYLS.

The faculty as a whole wants us to succeed; it is obvious in everything that they do. Career Services is wonderful and helps with networking a lot.

New York Law School is a decent school. Unfortunately, it's fallen prey to the epidemic of tuition and career inflation.

Great Location in NYC. The surrounding area is nice; upscale, access to plenty of restaurants and bars. There are a lot of internship opportunities that are posted because there are so many firms in the city. However there is little access to firms and resources outside of NYC so if you live out of state and plan to work there, you may have to search on your own. The workload is heavy but that is expected in law school. There is some competition between students because of how the grading system works but for the most part it is at a minimum and is a friendly environment. Most faculty members are highly accessible and willing to help. Career services is pretty good, my particular counselor is always available and willing to meet and discuss anything.
