1L Summer

“I was a summer associate at Goldman Sachs in their Investment Management division. It was the perfect job for me because I was able to pursue my passion for business and leverage the analytical skills I gained from my first year at NYU Law.”

2L Highlight: NYU Law Abroad

“I had a fantastic experience in Shanghai. We learned about international law and how business interacts with the laws in Shanghai. Business relationships are so important they have a special term: guanxi.”

Building a Legacy

“I am the first person in my family to get a JD, so NYU Law has been not only life-changing but it’s been a stepping stone.”
