NYU Advantage: 1L Elective

“International Law as a 1L is valuable if you want to fully appreciate more advanced international law courses during the rather short time you have at the law school.”

2L Academics: Public Meets Private

“During my 2L year, I took International Business Transactions with Professor Franco Ferrari and Law and Policy of Foreign Investment with Professor José Alvarez. Both courses dealt with the convergence of public international law and private international law.”

3L Highlight: Global Fluency

“I finished my substantial writing requirement on Argentina sitting in a café in Buenos Aires. I think that was probably my favorite moment of law school.”

NYU Law in Two Words

“Buena onda.”
