Global Opportunities at NYU Law


The World and Washington Square

NYU Law’s offerings in international, comparative, and foreign law are unsurpassed.

The Hauser Global Law School Program brings Hauser Global Faculty, Global Fellows, and Distinguished Global Fellows to New York from around the world to teach, study, and collaborate. These outstanding scholars and practitioners are joined by more than 300 international students, including the top-ranking Hauser Global Scholars, as well as exchange students and Visiting Doctoral Researchers.
