What We Do 

The Office of Graduate Affairs (OGA) is the front door to the Law School for LLM and Exchange students. Our mission is to enrich the experience of our students while at NYU Law through advising, community-building, and stimulating programming.

OGA provides advice on registration, course selection, academic policies, extracurricular opportunities, acclimating to the Law School, and even on adjusting to life in New York City. We also serve as a resource for referrals to other members of the Law School and University communities who can help meet your needs.

Programmatically, we focus on three areas: academic success, community building, and professional development. Early in the academic year, we offer workshops on study skills such as outlining and time management. Beyond academics, we believe that one of the most valuable benefits of the LLM program is the friendships you will develop with classmates, and other members of the Law School community. We provide opportunities for you to interact with each other, faculty members and NYU administrators. We also facilitate opportunities to develop “soft” skills and have hosted workshops on topics including cultural competence, networking and leadership development. 

You can reach the Office of Graduate Affairs by phone at 212-998-6015 or via email at law.graduateaffairs@nyu.edu. You may also visit our virtual reception area Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm.

Please note: Tax and International Tax students who seek advice should consult the Graduate Tax Program at law.taxprograms@nyu.edu and by phone at (212) 998-6150.
