ABA Standard 509 Consumer Information

Standard 509 of the American Bar Association (ABA) requires law schools to make certain consumer information publicly available. Much of the information is included in NYU Law’s most recent ABA Standard 509 Information Report, which was released by the ABA in December 2019. Below is a guide to the categories of information that can be found in that report or elsewhere on the NYU website. For categories that appear in both the ABA report and on the website (e.g., tuition, fees, and living costs) the information on the website may be more current.

Conditional scholarships and retention data

NYU Law does not award scholarships that are conditional on law school academic performance; therefore we do not post an ABA "conditional scholarship retention worksheet."
