At Cardozo Law, legal education extends far beyond the pages of casebooks. Our renowned faculty and internationally recognized programs provide a solid foundation for your future.
Cardozo Law provides a superb grounding in the essential principles that underpin our system of justice. Our students learn methods of analytical reasoning while they examine both the role lawyers play in society and their ethical responsibilities to clients. We enable students to build on this foundation so that they will be able to develop innovative approaches for a new legal landscape. As business models, cultural standards and public institutions undergo major transformations, we help students understand the new challenges and fresh opportunities those changes will present so that they may craft solutions to problems and practice at the highest levels of the profession.
At Cardozo Law, we nurture lawyers who are creative and flexible thinkers. We believe career success relies on a complementary set of creative and concrete skills, so today's successful lawyer needs equal parts intellectual depth and practical expertise. You will develop both when you study and train with our faculty of intellectual scholars and practitioners.
As part of Yeshiva University, we draw on the Jewish tradition of scholarship and ethics to build a superb secular and diverse law school. The Cardozo Law experience offers groundbreaking clinics, a selection of field clinics within major legal organizations, and a robust range of externships and study abroad opportunities. You may also choose to participate in one of our distinctive simulation programs, such as our Intensive Trial Advocacy Program and Intensive Mediation Advocacy Program. No matter which of these opportunities you choose to pursue, you'll learn how to think creatively and seize opportunities for yourself and your clients while deepening your understanding of the crucial human element in all aspects of legal work. You'll experience the important teamwork, negotiation and transactional skills that build law careers and create great leaders.
… And you will be working and studying in the legal capital of the world.
At Cardozo, you'll gain the critical legal perspective that prepares you for opportunities—whether they're around the corner or across the globe.
