The Undergraduate Law Society is NYU’s premier undergraduate organization devoted to helping students interested in law school and the legal profession. We aim to help students explore the field of law by hosting informative events, building an inclusive community of mentors and mentees, and providing students with the skills, information, and resources necessary for law school admissions.
Our organization is committed to the highest standards of integrity and honesty when running our club, including in all of our events and mentorship programs. We strive to ensure that all members and attendees are treated fairly and honestly, and that all students have access to the same information.
Our club strives to value quality and professionalism in everything we do. We are committed to our members and attendees by hosting a large number of events each semester, providing NYU students access to mentorship opportunities and LSAT tutoring, and being a constant resource for anyone with an interest in pre-law at NYU.
To aid in our goal of building a strong, diverse pre-law community on campus, we aim to foster an inclusive culture by building a diverse community of mentors and mentees, ensuring that all students have equal access to the resources needed to succeed, and hosting a wide range of events to help students with diverse backgrounds, interests, and identities.
