West Coast Connection is an academic, professional, and social law student organization composed of NYU Law students from, or with strong ties to, the Western United States (e.g., California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, etc.). WCC assists students who are new to the East Coast with integrating with the broader NYU Law community and feeling more “at home” in New York City in general. We accomplish this goal by acting as a resource and organizing a range of events.
Many of our events center around employment on the West Coast, challenges faced by students conducting a job search across the country, and insight into specific legal markets out west – highlighted by our annual panel in the spring. Even during social events, students are learning from older students who have gone through the process already and making connections or gaining insight that might help them find meaningful legal employment on the West Coast.
