The Law and Business Initiative
With the most comprehensive range of law and business offerings in legal education, NYU’s Law and Business Program prepares students to succeed in the 21st-century global economy.
Students are encouraged to deepen their business understanding in multiple ways. They can choose from an extensive—and continually evolving—number of law courses, many of which are global in scope and focused on today’s practice environment, taking on issues in corporate law, compliance and enforcement, intellectual property, social impact and entrepreneurship, labor and employment law, and land use, among others. Students may also take uniquely designed interdisciplinary law and business courses that bring together faculty from the Law School and NYU’s Stern School of Business to focus on current real-world case studies or enroll directly in classes at Stern. NYU offers several combined degrees and professional certificate programs including, a JD/MBA, JD/MA or PhD in Economics, several business-oriented LLM degrees, or an Advanced Professional Certificate in Law and Business.
The many faceted NYU Law and Business Initiative also includes the Mitchell Jacobson Leadership Program, a scholarship opportunity for exceptional students with an interest in pursuing high-level careers in law and business; the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement, which focuses on academic outreach, policy conferences with enforcement officials, and programs for students; the Pollack Center for Law & Business, a joint venture of the Law School and Stern that concentrates on academic research; the Comfort Global Economic Policy Forum, an annual event featuring prominent thinkers and policymakers; and the NYU Leadership Series in Law and Business.
The Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison Transactional and Law & Business courses, named in recognition of the firm's generous grant, comprise this ground-breaking curriculum. Additionally, students gain practical experience in the Business Law Transactions Clinic.
The Amy and Brian Schorr Family Leadership Luncheon Speaker Series for students and NYU Law's Leadership Series featuring innovators at the intersection of law and business are among the many community-wide events held each semester.
