Students should submit applications to clinics online using the Clinic Application and Matching System (CAMS) (https://its.law.nyu.edu/cams/). An NYU NetID and a Law School-issued password are required to access the system. Once you log in, you will be able to upload the application form, resume and unofficial transcript required by all clinics. Note that there is a separate application form for LLM students. The application form is in Word format and should be saved to your local computer, filled out and then submitted via (CAMS). Some clinics may request additional materials to supplement the basic application; these should also be submitted online via CAMS. If you have trouble saving the form, please contact the NYU School of Law Help Desk at (212) 998-6111. For other questions about CAMS please contact Susan Hodges.
