The NYU Advantage: Taking a 1L Elective

“I think having the option of taking International Law in my 1L year really solidified my interest in the field and enabled me to take other international law courses early on in law school.”

2L Academics: Faculty Collaboration

“I really enjoyed Professor Linda Silberman’s International Litigation and Arbitration class. One of the topics that we discussed was judgment enforcement and recognition, both in the US and other countries. That’s an issue that she works on, and I got the chance to do some research for her on that topic.”

3L Highlight: NYU Law Abroad in Paris

“The Paris clinic allowed me to strengthen my advocacy skills. My clinic project required frequent correspondence with an EU institution and allowed me to learn how to navigate a legal system with which I was unfamiliar.”

Achievements & Inspirations

Leadership Opportunity

Organized a symposium for the Journal of International Law and Politics on the role of judges in international law.

Real-World Issues

Took the Reproductive Justice Clinic with Professor Sarah Burns.

More Than a Class

Was part of the Hauser Globalization Colloquium with Professor Ryan Goodman.

The Washington Square Way

“At NYU Law, someone is always putting on an event or a lecture; people are always getting together and organizing different projects. It’s a really great community.”
