The Big Picture
NYU gives students a uniquely business-focused law school experience, with the most comprehensive range of law and business offerings in contemporary legal education.
Law and Business programs include the Mitchell Jacobson Leadership Program in Law and Business, the J.D. /M.B.A. with the Stern School of Business (you can apply to both schools with a single application form and, in some cases, appropriate education or work experience can substitute for the GMAT) and the Advanced Professional Certificate Program in Law and Business. NYU also offers a J.D./M.A. (or Ph.D) in Economics.
NYU Law is also known for its strengths in financial services law and policy, commercial law, economic analysis of law, and labor and employment law. Thanks to NYU’s unbeatable location in downtown Manhattan and the University’s strong connections to the business world, forged in part by our Pollack Center for Law & Business, students get unparalleled access to and support from top business professionals in the form of classroom participation, mentorships, internships and career placements. The Center for Law, Economics and Organization promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching in law and economics. And Center for the Study of Central Banks and Financial Institutions supports research in cutting-edge issues at the intersection of global finance and law.
We have a rich curriculum taught by full-time faculty on a wide range of topics: Corporate Law; Securities; Mergers and Acquisitions; Corporate Crime and Financial Misdealings; Regulation of Financial Institutions; Deal Courses; International Finance, Development, Arbitration, and Commerce; Consumer Contracts and E-Commerce, Employment Law, and Law and Economics.
Fellowships, scholarships and prizes are also awarded in business law. Lawrence Lederman Fellowships in Law and Economics, for example, are offered each year to 2Ls who want to write a research paper in Law and Economics or Law and Business.
