Cardozo Law is in the heart of New York City, one of the largest legal communities in the world. Our students work throughout the five boroughs, and groundbreaking legal and business events occur at the school. As a Cardozo Law student, you’ll also benefit from our strong ties to institutions and organizations—from the Manhattan D.A.'s office, where over 32 Cardozo alumni are currently practicing, to the United Nations. Cardozo's clinical program is a leader in hands-on legal training. The Innocence Project was founded at the school, and the Indie Film Clinic allows students to work on the legal side of independent film work.
Cardozo's field clinics program is based on partnerships with major government and public interest offices around New York City, which allow you to work alongside seasoned practitioners. You also have opportunities to put deep theoretical knowledge into practice through externships at top global businesses, nonprofits, government offices or federal and state courts.
Cardozo is your connection to New York City.
