Law and Government Society


To bring together the NYU Law Community interested in government service and public policy; to connect students to public service opportunities and to public policy leaders in government, academia, and non-profits; to encourage exploration of the nexus between law, government, and politics. Every year LGS coordinates a trip to DC to meet with public and private sector attorneys in government agencies, the White House, at firms, and elsewhere, to learn about career opportunities. Additionally, LGS sponsors lectures, debates, panels, and brown-bag lunches on campus.


Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the appropriate board member below if you have ideas for events or questions about our organization.
