New York City + Engaged Faculty + Clinics & Boot-camp Intensives = Success
Cardozo is the ideal place to study corporate, securities, and commercial law, offering a comprehensive curriculum taught by professors who are recognized experts in their fields. Core courses familiarize students with the fundamental concepts and theories of corporate law, and upper-level courses focus on advanced topics and specific practice areas. In addition, special courses equip students with the skills and tools they will need in corporate practice, whether as transactional lawyers or litigators.
New York City: Cardozo’s location in New York City, the world’s leading financial and commercial center, provides students a wealth of internship and clinical opportunities for hands-on experience with clients. Speakers, special guests and panels enrich the community and are great for networking.
The Heyman Center on Corporate Governance supports research in environmental law, financial institutions, antitrust, mass tort litigation, alternative dispute resolution (including business and securities arbitration), employment law, international and comparative business, investment, and trade, and commercial law.
Intensives: Students are encouraged to take advantage of short boot-camp simulation programs in January, which include Negotiation Theories and Skills, Intensive Transactional Lawyering Program (ITRANS) and Introduction to Financial Statements (I-Fins) all of which help lawyers in every field understand business practices.
