The NYU Journal of Law & Business (“JLB”) is one of NYU School of Law’s most innovative academic journals, providing a forum for dialogue and analysis of current issues, ideas, and problems at the intersection of two dynamic fields: law and business. The Journal aims to contribute to academic scholarship, as well as the professional development of its readership, through the publication of pieces by both academics and practitioners. Each year we hold a symposium on a contemporary topic that highlights the interrelationship of law and business.

The Journal explores a number of general areas, including: bankruptcy and restructuring; capital markets and securities; corporate law and governance; foreign and international business law; hedge funds and private equity; and tax.

Our practical approach to legal writing and greater contact with practicing attorneys offer ways to prepare for leadership roles during and after law school. We invite legal and business professionals to contribute to the journal’s development by submitting an article or practitioner note, by making a panel presentation at a JLB-sponsored event, or by contacting the Journal with suggestions about how to improve our mission.
