The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is a dynamic institution that provides a challenging and stimulating intellectual experience, a rigorous foundation in fundamental legal concepts, exposure to the knotty and concrete problems encountered by practicing lawyers, and an opportunity for students with widely different substantive and professional interests to pursue studies they consider important.

 

Cardozo's outstanding faculty is drawn from the leading ranks of America's legal scholars and practitioners. Over half hold advanced degrees in areas other than law, bringing added dimensions to the quality of learning. Objective studies of productivity and influence generally place the Cardozo faculty within the top 15‑30 law school faculties in the country. Cardozo has one of the top six programs in both Intellectual Property, and Dispute Resolution.

 

Cardozo's student body numbers approximately 1,100, with roughly the same number of men and women. They come from a broad distribution of undergraduate schools, disciplines, and interests from over 36 states. Approximately 21% of the students come from minority groups and 14% graduated 5 or more years ago.

 

Cardozo offers a unique approach to the study of law: a balance of a scholarly exploration of the philosophical underpinnings of legal, social, and economic structures and professional training in the doctrinal knowledge and practice skills needed to effectively practice law. The Jacob Burns Institute for Advanced Legal Studies supports advanced academic research, major symposia, and student scholarships. The Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Center on Corporate Governance sponsors major conferences and research in the area of corporate and business law, and the role of corporations and corporate managers in our society. The Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy focuses on comparative constitutionalism and new democracies.

 

In the New York City Law Department Appellate Externship Program, students work in the Appeals Unit of the New York City Department of Law under the supervision of an appellate attorney and an instructor. Under the Alexander Judicial Fellows Program, students have the opportunity to clerk full‑time for one semester for a federal judge. Cardozo offers summer programs in Central European University in Budapest, and Oxford University in Great Britain.

 

Cardozo's clinics provide students with substantive practical experience to augment the theoretical training that occurs in the classroom. Cardozo's Securities Arbitration Clinic provides assistance to investors who have securities arbitration grievances against brokers and broker‑dealers. Under faculty supervision, law students represent investors in their disputes. The one‑semester Human Rights and Genocide Clinic introduces students to the practice of law in the cross‑cultural setting of international human rights litigation and advocacy. In the area of criminal law, students may participate in the Criminal Defense Law Clinic, the Criminal Appeals Clinic, The Innocence Project, or the Prosecutor Practicum. Students selected for the Criminal Defense Law Clinic do field work in the Brooklyn Criminal Court, representing the criminally accused. The Criminal Appeals Clinic allows students to represent indigent appellants before the First Department of the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court. Students in The Innocence Project help wrongfully‑convicted persons to gain freedom through DNA evidence. Prosecutor Practicum participants work in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, performing many of the functions of an assistant district attorney, under the supervision of an instructor and a senior assistant district attorney. The Intensive Trial Advocacy Program brings to the campus 175 trial lawyers and judges from around the US for a two‑week program of hands‑on trial practice.

 

Cardozo's Bet Tzedek Legal Services Clinic advocates on behalf of poor, homebound elderly and people with disabilities. The Mediation Clinic provides arbitration and mediation experience in situations involving personal and social conflict. The Tax Clinic is an innovative program that provides students with practical experience in tax law by representing taxpayers in cases pending before the United States Tax Court. There is also an Immigration Clinic and Holocaust Claims Restitution Clinic.

 

Cardozo sponsors a Moot Court Honor Society, one faculty journal, and six student publications. The Law Review; Arts and Entertainment Law Journal; Journal of International and Comparative Law; The Cardozo Public Law, Policy & Ethics Journal; Journal of Conflict Resolution; and the Journal of Law and Gender (formerly the Women's Annotated Legal Bibliography, the first annotated bibliography of legal commentary on women's issues) select students on the basis of scholarship and writing ability. Studies in Law and Literature is a professional journal, edited by a senior member of the faculty, co‑published by U of C Press and guided by a distinguished board of editors. Students have the opportunity also to work on The New York Real Estate Reporter, a faculty newsletter.

 

The J.D. program, requiring 84 credits, consists of six full‑time semesters of study. First‑year students take a series of basic, prescribed courses; second‑ and third‑year programs are elective, with the exception of distribution requirements and required courses in professional responsibility, upper level legal writing, and advanced legal research. An LL.M. degree is offered in Intellectual Property, General Studies, and Comparative Legal Thought.

 

Cardozo offers the Alternative Entry Plan (AEP), which allows students to begin their studies in either January or May. Students beginning in January complete two semesters by the end of the summer and complete the six semesters in two‑and‑one‑half years. Students beginning in May complete one semester during the summer and then continue in the fall. AEP classes are small and provide the same depth of legal training as the traditional program.

 

Cardozo is on 11 floors of the Brookdale Center located in Greenwich Village. The Dr. Lillian and Dr. Rebecca Chutick Law Library occupies four floors containing over 539,391 volumes and is fully equipped with networked computers and microform reader‑printers. A residence hall is located one block away, on 11th Street.

 

Established in 1976, Cardozo is accredited by both the ABA and AALS. It holds a charter from the Order of the Coif.
