The Office of Alumni Relations and Development is pleased to offer a wide variety of benefits and services to NYU School of Law graduates, some of which require an NYU Alumni Card. The NYU Alumni Card, which is valid for one year from the date of issue, is free for new graduates and sent to alumni who make a gift to any of the NYU Annual Funds. For detailed information on the many benefits available to NYU Law alumni, please follow the links below. For more information on benefits available to all NYU alumni, please visit the University Alumni Benefits page

 

Access to Law School Buildings

The Office of Alumni Relations warmly welcomes alumni to visit campus to attend events, use the Law Library, or simply “look around.” It is important to note that, as with any New York City building, there are standard procedures and requirements for entering Vanderbilt or Furman Halls.

Attending an Event: Alumni attending an event at the Law School should be prepared to show photo identification to the guard at the entrance of each building. Alumni will then be directed to the event location, where they may have to formally register for the event.

Law Library: Alumni wishing to use the Law Library are required to make an annual contribution to the Annual Fund of $250. Alumni who graduated two years ago may become members for $75. Alumni who graduated up to one year ago are invited to enjoy a complimentary membership for their first year out of law school. A library card will be mailed once the contribution is received. Please note that a Law Library card is needed for admittance and NYU Bobst Library cards will not be accepted. 

Facilities Walk Through: Alumni wishing to take a tour of any Law School building must obtain a temporary visitors pass after presenting photo identification to the guard posted at the entrances of Furman and Vanderbilt Halls. Alumni are welcome to visit common areas of the Law School, excluding classrooms, offices, and the Law Library unless they have a library card.
