About the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law:

Founded in 1976 by Yeshiva University, one of the finest research universities in the United States, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law has a national reputation for a top-caliber faculty and an innovative academic program that includes a wide range of exciting and practical opportunities.

Cardozo's faculty is known for being widely-published legal scholars, most of whom have also practiced law. They are accessible, and invite ongoing dialogue with their students-inside and outside of the classroom. In addition, nearly half of the faculty also hold advanced degrees in other disciplines, making them particularly qualified to provide a well-rounded and rigorous legal education. With a diverse selection of internships and externships, along with a clinical program that offers experiences in criminal, corporate, family, human rights, and immigration law, as well as others, Cardozo students also benefit from a curriculum that has a strong balance of theory and practice.

There are certain qualities that set Cardozo apart and give it a unique character. Among them are flexibility and the desire and drive not to be complacent, but to constantly improve for the benefit of students and society-all with New York as a back drop. Cardozo's special, nationally known programs-among them the Innocence Project, Intellectual Property Law Program, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Holocaust Claims Restitution Clinic-combine intellectual excellence and a visionary edge that is helping to shape the legal landscape.
