The World and Washington Square

NYU Law’s offerings in international, comparative, and foreign law are unsurpassed.

The Hauser Global Law School Program brings Hauser Global Faculty, Global Fellows, and Distinguished Global Fellows to New York from around the world to teach, study, and collaborate. These outstanding scholars and practitioners are joined by more than 300 international students, including the top-ranking Hauser Global Scholars, as well as exchange students and Visiting Doctoral Researchers.

Opportunities for students extend far beyond New York. NYU Law Abroad offers specially-designed programs in Buenos Aires, Paris, and Shanghai. The Law School also supports an array of international moot competitions as well as summer and postgraduate internships and fellowships.

Our centers regularly sponsor conferences and research programs on issues of global concern, involving NYU Law students as well as faculty, in New York and overseas.
