New York Law School Graduate Reviews
As it is located in Manhattan, NYLS has a very diverse community and many foreign (non-US) students attend the school. There is a diversity of different clubs that relate to ethnic backgrounds, but many are mixed. NYLS draws from all kinds of economic background and does not show a predisposition to favor any one type of background. It rather focuses on the nature and character of the candidate. Although it does not state outright, the political atmosphere of the school is definitely democratic/liberal leaning. Cannot say that there is a religion that dominates the school, but if I had to state one, it would be "Law." What I mean is that there is no time nor need for religious leanings, because once you enter the school, you are engaged/married to the Law and its enforcement.
Focus of the school is Law so the curriculum focus is law including the Federal and State laws and regulations. The Staff and professors are retired or semi-active lawyers who spend their time teaching the next generation what it means to be a successful lawyer. Like any law school, the workload consists of reading, understanding and applying case law to a variety of situations.
Although not ranked highly in the "Best Law Schools of America". New York Law School's location gives it's students access to a wide variety of potential employers plus the Supreme Court and Appellate Divisions are a short walk away.As it is located in lower Manhattan, almost all of the employers are highly ranked and have sent recruiters to campus weekly.
