Office of Career Services (OCS)

In accordance with NYU’s preventative measures surrounding COVID-19, all OCS appointments will be held remotely. We ask students to update phone numbers, resumes and all relevant documents on CSM.

Appointments for Current Students: To set up a phone or Zoom appointment, please call our receptionist at 212-998-6090, or email law.careers@nyu.edu or your counselor (not both). 

Drop-In Times for Current Students: Drop-ins (15 minutes via phone or Zoom) are available weekdays (except Wednesday) from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and every week-day from 2:00-4:00 p.m. To reserve a time, call our receptionist at 212-998-6090, or email law.careers@nyu.edu

Events: All events will be held virtually for the Spring semester.

One of the privileges New York University School of Law students enjoy is also a challenge: How to choose among the wide range of careers an NYU School of Law degree makes possible. The success of NYU School of Law students in finding jobs in the private sector is well known, as is their success in the world of public service.

Students are assisted in their job search by the most extensive placement program in the country. The Office of Career Services, together with the Public Interest Law Center, organizes numerous recruiting programs, panels and workshops, practice interview programs, and offers individual counseling sessions.

Similar success is enjoyed by students seeking judicial clerkships nationwide through NYU School of Law's Judicial Clerkship Office. NYU School of Law graduates have clerked at the United States Supreme Court and the International Court of Justice in The Hague. Graduates also obtain positions on the faculties of law schools worldwide.
