The Office of Communications updated the Law School's style guide during Spring 2009.

Here are some key updates to the guide:
Accepted references to the school:
- [the] New York University School of Law
- [the] NYU School of Law
- NYU Law
- the Law School
The names of certain centers, locations and people both inside and outside the NYU School of Law have often been printed inaccurately. Commonly bungled names include the following:
- The NYU Pollack Center for Law & Business
- Dwight D. Opperman Institute of Judicial Administration
- The Center on Law and Security
- The Center on the Administration of Criminal Law
- The AnBryce Scholarship Program
- D’Agostino Hall
- Tishman Auditorium
- Dean Richard Revesz
- Samuel Issacharoff
- Cristina Rodríguez
- Margaret Satterthwaite
- Guantánamo Bay
- Waldorf-Astoria (not Waldorf=Astoria)
We do not use nicknames for faculty (e.g., it is always “Roderick Hills” rather than “Rick Hills”).
After an initial reference to the proper name of a center, program, institute, or colloquium at NYU Law (the Center on Law and Security, the Institute for Policy Integrity), subsequent references to “the center,” “the institute,” “the colloquium,” and so on should be lowercase.
