At New York University School of Law, an adventurous intellectual spirit prevails. Our goal, ambitious and maybe a bit impetuous, is to chart the future course for American legal education by developing and refining programs of genuine excellence that encompass the strengths of the traditional curriculum while incorporating interdisciplinary, global, and clinical dimensions.

 

We are a work in progress, not a final product. But our success to date is remarkable. The breadth of advanced interdisciplinary work occurring at NYU School of Law is, quite simply, unmatched: thus, for example, there is no law school in the world with our philosophical sophistication; our faculty is on the cutting edge of work in law and economics, game theory, and rational choice theory; we are an important center of research in legal history; and studies in law and society are flourishing as well. The Law School's groundbreaking Hauser Global Law School Program has placed in residence, on a permanent basis, legal scholars and outstanding graduate students from, quite literally, every corner of the world; no other law school has implemented a program of this scope. And our clinical program probably needs no introduction; its reputation as the leading program in clinical studies is seldom questioned and well deserved.

 

At the same time, we have not sacrificed the advantages of the traditional curriculum. On the contrary, the traditional curriculum at NYU School of Law has been greatly enriched by all of this. The insights of theory surface regularly in class discussions from basic first‑year courses to upper‑level courses in subjects like Corporations and Constitutional Law to advanced graduate courses in areas like Tax. Moreover, with the advent of the Hauser Global Law School Program has come a great range of new offerings in comparative and international law, often co‑taught by professors from more than one nation. And, clinical education has made its way into traditional subjects as well, with courses in Evidence, Advanced Procedure, Environmental Law, and Professional Responsibility (to list but a few) being taught in alternative, clinical formats.

 

NYU School of Law has a historic commitment to social justice‑much of the work in interdisciplinary legal studies is devoted to the ongoing, never‑free‑from‑controversy project of charting the course of a good society. Global studies are an important corrective for the tendency of thinkers and activists in any society to overvalue parochial convention. And clinical education directly engages the enterprises of securing justice for individuals and protecting society from harm. We take pride in being a community of ideas, a community in which orthodoxy is challenged, and invention is celebrated. We ask of our students that they share in and act upon these commitments.

 

At the heart of any great school is its canonical curriculum, that critical artery of primary knowledge that provides the context for the critical reflection undertaken in all of the educational enterprise. Certain subjects have been, for generations, the canon of American legal education. No school that sought to be an academic leader could compromise the breadth or quality of its offerings in these areas. This canon is, simply, the bedrock upon which excellence in other areas must be built.

 

The LawSchool's most basic commitment is to offer students an opportunity to explore law from all its diverse angles, and to do so in an environment that is cooperative rather than competitive. In part, this simply means providing resources and faculty, and the NYU School of Law faculty includes men and women who work and teach in an array of fields. But the school offers more than this. A generation ago, interdisciplinary study meant examining law from the perspective of another discipline. Today, it means integrating methodologies and perspectives from more than one discipline in order to gain a multidimensional understanding of legal problems.

 

NYU School of Law has pioneered the development of tools to make interdisciplinary work genuinely enriching. Rather than just add faculty members who work in more than one discipline, we have found ways to create a dialogue in which students and faculty with diverse interests and expertise work together; forcing each other to grapple with problems in novel ways.

 

In these and other ways‑independent study, seminars, joint degree programs, courses in other departments, conferences, symposia, and more‑students are encouraged to explore the law in the ways that interest them most, aided by faculty with related interests.

 

The development of interdisciplinary legal studies manifests a recognition that the law does not exist in isolation; that it is formed by, and it affects, other areas of intellectual endeavor. But law does not exist in geographic or cultural isolation, either. As the social, political, and economic systems of different nations become ever more interconnected and interdependent, so too will their legal systems. Already, an increasing proportion of what most lawyers do brings them into contact with this transnational system. The globalization of law is already happening; and judges, lawyers, and legal academics must be prepared to deal with it.

 

The Hauser Global Law School Program is designed to attract faculty and students from many nations into one intellectual community, to make NYU School of Law a "global" rather than a national law school and, by assimilating these diverse perspectives, to both challenge the most fundamental premises of America's legal system and prepare NYU School of Law graduates for the global environment in which they will practice.

 

At the faculty level, the Hauser Global Law School Program supplements the law school's already distinguished American faculty by assembling some of the world's leading law professors from six continents to teach how they think about law and learn how we do. While remaining affiliated with their national universities, these professors have a sustained relationship with the LawSchool. This global perspective does not stop with the faculty. NYU School of Law also recognizes the importance of salting the student body with the finest law students from around the world. Last year, more than 300 full‑time students were citizens of countries other than the UnitedStates; indeed, the law school's student body is drawn from more than fifty different countries.

 

One of the most attractive features of studying law is its applied nature. Legal studies can be as theoretical as the most academic disciplines, but law ultimately must be anchored in the real world. One of the most difficult challenges in studying law is learning how to bridge this gap‑how to translate theories into principles that can be understood and used by judges and lawyers in their everyday practice.

 

Situation‑based study at NYU School of Law begins with the Lawyering course in the first year, and culminates in the upper years in elective fieldwork clinics in which students represent actual clients under close faculty supervision. A distinctive feature of the Law School's clinics is that the faculty who teach them are tenured or tenure‑track professors whose sole professional interest is the research and teaching they do at the law school; the result is not only that the law school attracts the finest clinical faculty but also that our students receive full attention. NYU School of Law has the nation's premier clinical program, as well as the largest and most diverse.

 

An important feature of the NYU School of Law experience flows from our location in NewYork City, the legal and financial capital of the world. Whether one will practice in Sydney or San Francisco, Zurich or Chicago, studying in New York is an irreplaceable experience. This is especially the case when it can be done, as it can be done at NYU School of Law, while living in a community as special as Greenwich Village; two‑thirds of the Law School faculty and over 90% of its law students live within a five minute walk of the law school. The combination of the world's greatest city with one of the world's greatest neighborhoods creates a truly spectacular environment for the study of any subject, but especially for the study of law.

 

NYU School of Law has invested heavily in state‑of‑the‑art technology. The result: we are fully wired with the latest equipment in our faculty and administrators offices, student residences, classrooms, library, and computer labs and cyber cafe. This technology does not sit idle. Faculty has seized the possibilities for new pedagogy it provides: increasingly, classroom activities have a technological component, whether it consists of utilizing presentation software for lectures, downloading charts and data prepared in advance by faculty, playing video or audio tapes, researching in real time, monitoring current market quotes, or conducting video‑conferences. Once class is over, classroom conversation continues not only in the law school's lounges but also on‑line.

 

In each element of the curriculum‑the traditional canon, interdisciplinary studies, global studies, and clinical studies‑NYU School of Law is a leader. It is fair to say that no other school offers a better array of opportunities in any of the four individual elements, and clearly no other school offers so much in all of them.

 

We invite you to look closely at the NYU Law community. Visit our campus and speak with our students. To pursue this course of study as part of the special community of faculty and students drawn from around the world to the singular setting of our Greenwich Village campus in New York City is to enjoy a unique academic experience at a level unmatched anywhere.
