New York City Program on Finance & Law

Our unique New York City Program in Finance and Law prepares you for global work.

Taking advantage of easy access to New York City, SUNY Buffalo Law students, including those in the joint J.D./MBA program and the Advanced Standing Two-Year J.D. program, can spend a semester living in New York while studying finance and law. Courses are taught by professors from the Law School.

The program provides an opportunity for law students to live and study in New York City for 16 weeks in classroom facilities located in the heart of Manhattan. The innovative curriculum is built around core practice areas related to corporate finance, capital markets, financial services, regulation and compliance, and is taught both by highly experienced attorneys and by academic faculty. In recognition of the global nature of finance and law, attention is devoted to international practice.

The program takes full advantage of New York City’s prominence as a global financial center. Through site visits, briefings, and interaction with high level professionals in a variety of fields, students get a sense of “what it feels like” to practice in the world of finance.
