The intellectual life at NYU Law benefits from the collection of centers invested in researching commercial and corporate law from various perspectives. Our centers and programs host regular events throughout the academic year and often provide additional opportunities for students to get involved in their work:

The Pollack Center for Law & Business, a unique shared venture between NYU School of Law and the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, is designed to enrich the professional education of students of law and business and to facilitate joint teaching in order to involve leaders in banking, business, and law in the intellectual life of the University.

The Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement is a law and policy program dedicated to developing a richer and deeper understanding of the causes of corporate misconduct and the nature of effective enforcement and compliance.

The Institute for Corporate Governance and Finance seeks to understand corporate governance in a world of activist shareholders and institutional investors and to encourage the development of institutional investors as a responsible force in corporate governance. 

The Center for Financial Institutions was established to study the nature and operations of the central banks established by more than 170 nations.

The Center for Law, Economics, and Organization promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching in law and economics.

The Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Commercial Law advances the study and practice of international business transactions and the way to solve related disputes either through litigation or arbitration.

The Grunin Center for Law and Social Entrepreneurship is advancing a global movement that creates new ways for law and lawyers to drive positive change in the world. The mission of the Grunin Center is to enhance the community of lawyers and legal institutions engaged in social entrepreneurship and impact investing and to accelerate their effective participation in these fields.

The Mitchell Jacobson Leadership Program in Law & Business is addressed to those students who aspire to a non-traditional career path that requires intensive training grounded in legal and business curricula. Graduates of the program will be equipped with the professional training that will enable them to take on leadership roles here and around the world.

NYU Law is home to the student-run Journal of Law & Business and the Transnational Notes blog, hosted by the Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Commercial Law.
