Students with laptops in class

At NYU Law, students are encouraged to take advantage of all the Law School has to offer, including working directly with faculty on their research, getting involved with our centers, and participating in clinics and student organizations. Here are some opportunities for those specifically interested in law and security:

The NYU Cyber Scholars Program offers an interdisciplinary scholarship program for students passionate about cybersecurity. Students who are selected for this prestigious scholarship program will join a cohort of peers from across the University as they develop a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity issues that integrates technical and non-technical disciplines.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the ASPIRE Scholarship aims to produce cybersecurity specialists who understand information-security issues from a multidisciplinary perspective. The ASPIRE program will provide a full-tuition law school scholarship for students who are passionate about cyber and information security and dedicated to careers in state, local, or federal government.

The Latham & Watkins Award in Technology and Law is a new program that will welcome its inaugural student scholar this year. This scholarship seeks to train a new generation of technology lawyers who are not only equipped to analyze the most complex technology law and policy issues, but also students who have mastered the technical understandings of the discipline. The student selected for this award must demonstrate a passion for technology and cybersecurity law and an interest in the interdisciplinary aspects of the subject.

The National Security Reading Group promotes a community of NYU students interested in national security law and creates mentoring and networking opportunities for students who wish to enter the field.
