Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

My experience at NYU Law has been more challenging, and more rewarding, than I could have ever imagined. I am currently taking classes from Professor Bryan Stevenson, a brilliant lawyer whose work I deeply admire. His classes on Racial Justice and Eighth Amendment Litigation have been a highlight of my time in law school. Through NYU Law's excellent clinical opportunities, I have worked as an intern at organizations including the Legal Aid Society and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). I am grateful for these experiences because they helped me develop real-world skills to apply to my future career as a public interest lawyer. Finally, future students should know that NYU Law has a very helpful career advising program. The public interest career counselors were instrumental in offering guidance on summer positions and post-graduate positions.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

NYU Law offers a rigorous legal education with excellent clinical and extra-curricular opportunities in public interest. Faculty and staff care about students and are committed to helping students learn and succeed in their careers. Additionally, NYU's location is fantastic for professional opportunities, and the school attracts incredible guest speakers who work in, or are traveling through, the city.

NYU is a wonderful school for self-motivated students. It's an incredible opportunity to be in the city; you have access to so many internship and other work opportunities. It is a very large school, so you should be prepared to feel like you're one in a very large crowd.

NYU is an amazing school with great opportunities. One wish I have is for the physical facilities of the campus to be more attractive (in line with peer schools) and provide space for the gatherings required by having such a large class-size.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Awesome community of people. NOT cut-throat, but quality education and peers (for both public interest and firm track students). School does a lot to support people. That said, it could do more for diversity, and cost of living in New York City is expensive...

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU Law is one of the top ten programs in the country by just about any useful metric that I am aware. The career counselors are very helpful and friendly, my professors have all been accessible outside of class, and the majority of my professors have been challenging and encouraged us to think deeply about the doctrinal matters. The two major concerns are monetary in nature - NYU's tuition is very high, and the cost of living in the West Village is also very high. However, NYU is fairly generous with scholarships, and if you are able to live off campus, the cost of living can fall dramatically. However, living off campus has its own trade-offs, but that is less relevant to analysis of the program.
