In Class. In Court. Involved.

NYU Law’s reputation for academic excellence is grounded in the scholarship of our faculty, which routinely draws accolades from the legal academy and beyond.

Our professors are also leaders in a wide range of disciplines, actively engaged as theorists, practitioners, policymakers, and commentators. We pride ourselves on the fact that our scholars live in the real world, not in an ivory tower. They pursue matters that are before courts and regulatory agencies, testify before lawmakers, serve on commissions, and advise government entities, NGOs, and other organizations. Students reap the benefits, as faculty members draw on their research and real-world experience in the classroom.
