New York Law School

New York Law School’s curriculum systematically integrates theory and practice. The traditional study of legal doctrine and institutions is always measured against the perspectives of legal practitioners. Fusing these perspectives gives the Law School’s graduates an extraordinarily rich and strong basis on which to build a productive, responsible, and rewarding life in the legal profession.

The full-time faculty and instructional staff of 60 teach all the required courses and most of the elective courses. They have broad experience in law practice, public as well as private, and are actively engaged in legal scholarship. The Law School also enjoys the contributions of more than 100 adjunct faculty members, consisting of attorneys, judges, and other public officials who offer many elective courses each year in the fields of their expertise.

Students choose from two primary course sequences: the full-time day program and the part-time evening program. Full-time students usually complete the 86 credits required for the Juris Doctor in three years; part-time students in four years. The required courses include Introduction to the American Legal System; Civil Procedure; Contracts; Constitutional Law; Corporations; Criminal Law; Evidence; Property; Torts; Legislation and Regulation; and Advanced Legal Methods. Students also complete two courses emphasizing the development of professional legal skills: a two-semester course on Legal Practice; and a one-semester course on Professional Responsibility.
