City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law

The mission of the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law, the only publicly-supported law school in New York City and one of only two in the State, is to educate students for the practice of law with special emphasis on public service and public interest law. We seek to enhance the diversity of the bar and to meet previously unmet legal needs, to recruit students from and train lawyers for historically under-served communities, and to educate all our students about the diverse and special legal needs of communities through our City and State. We seek to make legal education available to a broad variety of applicants based on an evaluation of the whole person, her/his background, prior academic and other work experience, dedication to public interest, and the degree to which these factors inspire confidence that s/he can successfully complete the Law School program and become an excellent lawyer.
