Why NYU Law: The Graduate Division

Option to Specialize

Students in the library

One of the largest and most intellectually diverse in the nation, our Graduate Division offers nine LLM degrees, an Executive LLM in Taxation, and the JSD. In each of our advanced programs, you’ll join a tight-knit group of students from around the globe.

The Best of Both Worlds

NYU Law's Graduate Division offers a wealth of opportunities, but our LLM programs offer small, focused communities that let you explore your interests in depth. Students can tailor our outstanding Master of Laws degree program to their needs or choose from eight high quality specializations as well as an executive program.

Whichever program you choose, you will be guided by accomplished faculty directors, who will offer advice about the curriculum, career planning, research, and extracurricular opportunities throughout the Law School, the University, and the greater city.
