Every year, student groups and journals at NYU Law hold symposia on legal issues of interest to students, faculty, and the legal and public interest communities. These symposia generally consist of a series of panels featuring expert faculty, practitioners, or students discussing various subtopics. This year's symposium topics include human rights, ethical challenges in business, transgender justice, environmental progress in NYC, affordable health care and internet governance.

The Law School's Symposium Funding Committee allocates funds for existing student groups and journal planning symposia of interest to students.

There will be an information session on Tuesday, November 12 from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m. in Vanderbilt Hall, Classroom 216. All student group and journal leaders who may be interested in organizing a symposium this coming year should attend this meeting. We urge you to identify and invite to this meeting 2L’s in your groups who might want to play a leadership role in your symposium next year.
