Bringing the world to NYU and NYU to the world
Global problems need global solutions, and the Law School is leading the way on issues as diverse as international human rights, law and development, cross-border investment disputes and climate change.
NYU Law is committed to preparing students to work in a global setting. Our students get direct exposure to global legal issues both in the classroom and beyond it. The Law School’s curriculum includes an unsurpassed array of courses, clinics and colloquia in international, comparative and foreign law. At the graduate level we offer specialized LL.M. programs in International Legal Studies, International Business Regulation, Litigation and Arbitration, and International Taxation.
The curriculum we offer in New York is complemented by opportunities for NYU Law students to study abroad in places like Argentina and China and to work abroad in Law School-sponsored internships or fellowships at organizations such as the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. For JD students these opportunities are organized under the rubric of our innovative International Immersion Program.
The Law School’s intellectual reach is global in scope. The Hauser Global Law School Program brings leading law professors from around the world to teach at NYU. In addition, the Global Fellows Program invites a diverse array of researchers, fellows and scholars from other countries to conduct and present their research at NYU. These Global Faculty and the Global Fellows are further joined by more than 300 international students, including the top-ranking Hauser Global Scholars. Centers such as the Center for Constitutional Transitions, the Center for Human Rights & Global Justice, the Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law, the Institute for International Law and Justice, and the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice regularly sponsor conferences and research programs on issues of global concern, involving NYU Law students as well as faculty, in New York and around the globe.
The international interest rate-rigging scandal currently ensnaring at least a dozen banks—and the fact that regulators might have known about it—stokes suspicions that corporate malfeasance is spinning out of control. This spring, the Law School magazine invited 10 distinguished faculty and alumni representing corporate defense, regulators, and prosecutors to discuss fraud, corruption, and bribery, and how to fight it. more
As commerce expands, both across borders and through space (the Internet), the study of commercial law and bankruptcy has become increasingly complex. At NYU Law, 12 faculty are taking part in conversations with scholars, regulators, courts, and legislators, raising such questions as whose laws should govern international sales, how to protect consumers, and how to best unravel businesses gone bad. more
