There is a special quality that sets CUNY Law students, faculty and staff apart. It is a unique mix of passion, preparation, and purposefulness that translates to real change for the people and communities they serve. CUNY Law is a community where students are supported and challenged to continue to strive by their peers and their instructors. The relationships that form in our halls, classrooms and offices continue for years. This strong and remarkable community is what makes CUNY Law unlike any other law school in the nation.

Student Organizations

CUNY School of Law student organizations cover many areas of interests, but students are encouraged to form and register new organizations if a specific interest or mission is not reflected in any of the existing organizations.
