Areas of Study

Procedure

Overview

At NYU, Procedure is more than just a basic first-year requirement; it's an area of study vital to the administration of justice. The faculty—regarded as the strongest in the nation—are passionate about the importance of procedure and devoted to giving their students what they call “the keys to the kingdom.” They teach from experience, too. In addition to teaching, many of the professors have also participated in some of the most significant cases or projects in civil procedure recently.

The Hays Civil Liberties Program, the oldest and most respected program of its kind in the United States, awards fellowships to a small group of third-year students committed to civil liberties and offers them unique opportunities.
