Event Planning at NYU Law

Important COVID-19 Measures and Procedures

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NYU's building hours, policies, and procedures have been changed. We have suspended large in-person events at the Law School for at minimum the 2020-2021 academic year, and until we can safely reconvene in person. In the interim, we recommend hosting your events virtually, if possible.

The Dean’s Office has created a new protocol to better coordinate and report on virtual events and programs that enrich the intellectual life of the Law School and the broader legal community. For members of the Law School community who plan to host a faculty, student, or center-initiated virtual program during the fall semester, please fill out the Dean’s Office questionnaire. Our hope is that this process will identify opportunities for collaboration, minimize the number of conflicts, and ensure that adequate resources are allocated to virtual programs.  

If your event is open to members of the Law School community or the public, we recommend adding your event to the NYU Law Events Calendar. Instructions on how to do so can be found here.

For security reasons, we do not recommend including links to events that are not password protected on your calendar entry. You are free to use the platform of your choice to host your virtual event, but we have found that NYU Zoom, which is available via NYU Home, works very well. A guide to using Zoom can be found here.

If you have any questions regarding virtual events, please contact Joe Kadish, Administrative Coordinator (kadishj@mercury.law.nyu.edu) or Penelope Fernandes, Director of Institutional Events (penelope.fernandes@nyu.edu) in the Dean’s Office.
