Located in Greenwich Village, NYU School of Law was founded in 1835. It is highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report and it continues to be a very competitive school.

Besides international law, NYU offers additional focuses in business, clinics, constitutional, criminal, innovation, interdisciplinary, public interest, tax, and environmental.
Students can choose to pursue the dual-degree programs. Most of these programs are joint degree programs associated with other universities, including Princeton University, Harvard University, the University of Singapore, and the University of Melbourne. NYU Law prepares its students for the law world through the Lawyering Program and the Administration and Regulatory State.
NYU Law has twenty nine institutes and centers, such as the Institute for International Law and Justice.

Recently, NYU School of Law established programs in Law of Democracy and Law and Security. NYU Law is also known for its business and law program. The business and law program offers courses from tax law to business crime.
Students can become involved in public service through NYU’s Public Interest Law Center. Along with public service, NYU values leadership education for its law students. Leadership training courses and seminars allow students to be able to build these skills. The professors at NYU Law are experts in their fields and NYU continues to expand the size of its law faculty. Outside of the classroom, students are able to join over fifty six organizations and are encouraged to explore the city.
