The Advanced Certificate in Law & Business (ACLB) provides law students with tools necessary to understand the finance and accounting that underlie the transactions and business structures that lawyers design. The program is uniquely designed for future business lawyers. It permits students to receive graduate level business school training in conjunction with their legal education and to earn an Advanced Certificate from the NYU Stern School of Business.
The program gives an accessible academic dimension to corporate law studies. Furthermore, among its advantages, the graduate business school curriculum covers basic techniques and practices of business without requiring students to dedicate the extended time to earn an MBA degree.
The Leonard N. Stern School of Business is a leading US graduate business school. The Finance Department, which is especially involved in the certificate program, is consistently recognized as one of the leading centers for teaching and research in finance, banking, investments, and related fields.
Please note: The program is designed for admitted NYU Law students. The summer portion of this program has been extended to lawyers, subject to an admissions review. In lieu of the certificate, lawyers not enrolled at NYU Law School receive a transcript from the NYU Stern School of Business indicating the three core business courses completed.
