Education Law and Policy Society

The NYU Education Law and Policy Society (EdLaw) is committed to helping students who are interested in using their legal career to effect change towards ensuring a quality education for all youth.  EdLaw hosts a series of lunches and speaker panels throughout the year to help students network with practitioners, advocates and leaders in the field of education law as well as examine important and timely topics in education policy.  Students are encouraged to attend as many lunches and speaker events as possible to explore the vast array of career opportunities in the field of education law and policy.
