City University of New York School of Law

City University of New York School of Law

CUNY School of Law is the nation’s #1 public interest law school; its dual mission to practice law in the service of human needs and transform the teaching, learning, and practice of law to include those it has excluded, marginalized, and oppressed make it a singular institution. As the only publicly funded law school in New York City, CUNY Law increases access to excellent legal training through this mission.

CUNY Law is built on a tradition of radical lawyering: movements for social change are built with leadership and collaboration from the people and communities who have experienced injustice. The law school’s #1 ranking in diversity of the faculty and student body is an example of how its mission is realized through intentional recruitment and its status as a top-three clinical education program is a manifestation of CUNY Law’s commitment to partnering with local and grassroots organizations in the field. The CUNY Law community is one of activists, organizers, scholars, and advocates that stand united in the belief that only when the world can see the full range of human experience reflected and represented in the law will we have justice for everyone.
