For LL.M. and Exchange Students
All of our clinical courses combine work in the field with seminars and simulation exercises. For more details, please visit the Clinics website at http://www.law.nyu.edu/academics/clinics/index.htm. Students may not be registered in a clinic without first applying for and being accepted into it by the instructor. The application process for LL.M. students opens on July 1, 2013 and the deadline for submission of applications is July 15, 2013. Please consult the individual clinic descriptions for application procedures (click on links below). Additional clinic opportunities will be posted later in the spring. There are a few clinics that require particular qualifications which international LL.M. students are unlikely to have (these include Government Civil Litigation-EDNY; Government Civil Litigation-SDNY; Prosecution-EDNY; and Prosecution-SDNY).
Students who need the LL.M. degree to qualify to take the NY Bar should note that up to 4 credits in clinical classes may count toward the 24 credits required by the New York bar eligibility rules provided that: the 4 credits include a seminar component; and the clinical work is done under the direct supervision of instructional staff primarily employed by the Law School. Clinics that do not meet the requirements of the direct supervision rule are designated by the note “NCF” in the schedule of classes. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Graduate Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.The deadline for LL.M.s to submit applications is July 15, 2013.
