New York University School of Law (NYU Law) alumni Frank Guarini donated $20 million dollars to bolster the international law programs, as well as numerous initiatives, of NYU Law. This includes the launch of a new institute dedicated for the global practice of law. This will be to the benefit of all law students, including those taking their LLM degrees.
Frank Guarini took his law and LLM degrees from NYU in 1950 and 1955 respectively. He was a former New Jersey State Senator and US Congressman. He has been a constant supporter of NYU Law and provided funding for many projects and endeavors at the University. He donated the big amount to create the Guarini Institute with the goal of creating a platform for an interdisciplinary study of transnational regulatory and legal issues, and to transform global legal practice and services using technologically-driven instruments.
The launch of the Guarini Institute will pave the way for various initiatives, such as, the Global Fellows Program, the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Justice, the NYU Law Abroad, the International Conference Series, the scholarship of the global and international faculty of NYU Law and the Emile Noel Lecture Series. These only ensure graduates of NYU Law that they will face their future careers well-equipped with the necessary skills to meet the demands of today's law practice.
Law graduates interested in taking their LLM degree at NYU Law may choose from any of the following programs currently offered:
