January 7 - 15, 2016

Graduate and International Student Orientation for LLM, MSL, and Exchange students entering in the Spring 2016 term will take place January 7 - 15. Please note that this program will meet on a full-time intensive basis, even for those students who have been admitted on a part-time basis. Because orientation is scheduled for full days, (approximately 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. each day), we advise students to arrive in New York City at least one week before the start of orientation to get settled and make housing and other arrangements.

Orientation is mandatory for all incoming LLM and MSL students, so please plan accordingly. All students are required to be in attendance for full days throughout the entire orientation period.

Registration for the orientation program is required.

Note that LLM students who hold a JD from a U.S. law school need not attend the full orientation period, but rather will attend an abbreviated orientation.

Orientation Schedules

There are three orientation schedules: one for incoming LLM, exchange, and international visiting students who do not hold a JD from a U.S. law school, one for incoming LLM students who hold a JD from a U.S. law school, and one for all MSL students. Please ensure that you download the correct orientation schedule.
