The Law Center provides a world of opportunities. We offer more courses and more seminars on domestic and international topics than any other law school in the country. Our program in clinical education, ranked among the best in the nation, offers a wide range of legal assistance to needy members of our community - including domestic abuse and child cases, political asylum cases, and environmental justice. Our location puts us within walking distance of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Department of Justice.

Name of School - Third: 

New York University School of Law

Our educational mission focuses on our three core constituencies: students, faculty and alumni. There is an obvious interdependence among these three groups: By attracting the top students, faculty interest is magnified; likewise, enabling professors to do their best work and supplying them with the most desirable resources allows us to attract young scholars who are motivated and talented. Similarly, the more tangible the impact the Law School has on our community, the more engaged our alumni become. Our graduates are energized by the intellectual excitement of the school, enriching their own professional lives and adding still more luster to their alma mater's reputation. Loyal alumni give back, so that a cycle of generosity, learning, appreciation and active participation in our school and society continues.
