Scholarship

Lawyering faculty members bring not only diverse, exceptional practice experiences to the Lawyering Program but also outstanding scholarly works, interests, and potential. During a Lawyering faculty member’s two to three years at NYU, the Lawyering Program and NYU School of Law provide support for the ongoing development of scholarship.

Institutional support includes budgets for research, conferences, and research assistants; collaboration with the Academic Careers Program; and access to the many colloquia, practice groups, and workshops at NYU School of Law. Lawyering faculty members are also invited and encouraged to attend regularly scheduled faculty workshops and lunches.

The Lawyering Program coordinates the Lawyering Scholarship Colloquium, a weekly forum for Lawyering faculty to review and critique new scholarship. The colloquium is an invaluable tool for helping participants develop research ideas, prepare articles for submission, and perfect job talks. Participation is open to all Lawyering faculty members as well as other junior scholars in the NYU Law community. This year’s LSC co-chairs are Edith Beerdsen and Faraz Sanei.
