August 10 - 21, 2015

The Graduate and Exchange New Student Orientation program for students entering in the Fall 2015 term will take place August 10 - 21. Please note that this program will meet on a full-time intensive basis from August 10 to August 21, even for those students who have been admitted on a part-time basis. Because orientation is scheduled for full days, (approximately 9:00 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 S.J.D., LL.M., exchange, and international visiting 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 LL.M. students who hold a J.D. from a U.S. law school need not attend the full orientation period, but rather will attend an abbreviated orientation.

Additional information will be posted closer to the Orientation dates.
