Student Opportunities

Beyond course offerings, scholarships, fellowships, research opportunities, and internships, students have opportunities to engage in a range of social entrepreneurship activities at NYU Law. 

Social Enterprise and Startup Law Group

The Social Enterprise & Startup Law Group (SE-SL) is a student-run organization focused on social innovation, entrepreneurship and venture capital, and the lawyer’s role in these spaces. SE-SL manages extracurricular projects aimed at providing students with hands-on experience in working with social entrepreneurs. SE-SL coordinates educational events, career panels, and networking opportunities for NYU Law students. The Group also partners with organizations outside the law school to provide pro bono legal services to entrepreneurs, allowing SE-SL members to gain valuable lawyering experience.

The Grunin Center provides financial support to help students participate in the SE-SL’s annual alternative break trip, enabling students to connect with social entrepreneurs around the globe.
