Our prime location is a magnet for top legal talent - and that's to your benefit.

Club and Society

The Student Bar Association (SBA), Cardozo's student government, is an umbrella organization that oversees student groups and organizations. The SBA determines the budget of each approved student group and ensures that funds are spent properly. LL.M students are invited to join every club and organization of Cordozo and to serve as LL.M.

Urban life includes sights such as the windows of Fifth Avenue, the scenic waterfront, The High Line and Washington Square Park. And then there’s the food - from “Little Tokyo” on St. Mark’s Place, to cozy village gastropubs and bakeries, to Chinatown’s dumpling counters, New York cuisine offers something for every palate.
