1L Highlight: Real-world Interactions

“The highlight of my 1L year was volunteering with the alternative winter break program at the Juvenile Regional Services in New Orleans. They represent juveniles in the juvenile justice system, and work with them holistically to provide the social services support they need.”

2L Highlight: Hands-On Experience

“The Immigrants Rights Clinic has probably been my greatest experience in law school so far.”

3L Highlight: Favorite Class

“The State Courts and Appellate Advocacy Seminar is one of my favorite law school courses. It’s a simulation course taught by Judge Rosenblatt, a former NY Court of Appeals judge. It's pretty wonderful to have an actual judge give you feedback on your advocacy skills.”

Community Spirit

“As a student leader, I helped plan the Family of CoLR Appreciation Dinner (presented by the Coalition on Law and Representation), where faculty, staff, and administrators join students in celebrating life at NYU Law.”

NYU Law in Two Words

“Fun. Stimulating.”
