The school’s curriculum is taught by top-tier faculty and is distinguished not only by its strength across all traditional areas of legal study, but also by its global perspective. NYU Law has long been committed to educating global lawyers who will use their degrees to become world leaders in government, business, and, of course, the legal profession.
