The charged and robust intellectual atmosphere at the school promotes initiatives that help shape the legal landscape. The scholarship and ambition of our faculty, representing every major field of law, is evident throughout the school and motivates students in the classroom. Professors are quoted in the news frequently, and many have active blogs, contribute articles and op-ed pieces to major media outlets, and are actively sought for academic conferences nationally and internationally.

Faculty work with students on a wide range of academic events and conferences that bring to the school leaders in law, media, entertainment, finance and government to share their expertise and opinions with students.

In addition to the school’s great faculty, Cardozo’s robust intellectual life offers students opportunities to immerse themselves in the study of law.

Pre-eminent lawyers and legal practitioners are frequent guests, meeting with students and sharing their experiences. Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Antonin Scalia, John Paul Stevens, Stephen G. Breyer and Sandra Day O’Connor have been featured at Cardozo events in the past three years. Six law journals provide unique opportunities. Students who participate in Moot Court Honor Society compete in national and regional competitions, writing advocacy briefs and preparing for oral argument. And dozens of student organizations allow students to enhance their learning experiences
