Fall Orientation: August 12 - 23 / Spring Orientation: early January
Orientation is mandatory for all incoming LLM and visiting students, so please plan accordingly. All students are required to be in attendance for full days throughout the entire orientation period. 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.
Graduate and International Student Orientation for LLM and visiting students entering in the spring 2020 term will take place January 6 - 14. Fall 2020 orientation will take place in mid-August. Please note that orientation will meet on a full-time, intensive basis, even for part-time students. 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.
