Law & Business Specialization

The Law and Business specialization offers business students a more complete understanding of the legal implications of business transactions and the opportunity to serve their business clients more fully.  An understanding of the ways in which the law affects business relationships and should affect decisions made by manager and directors is a critical to success in today’s complex regulatory environment. Courses are offered at both Stern and the Law School and often enroll students from both programs. Joint degree programs in law and business are more than most students need, but a core of courses that permit law and business students to learn essential aspects of each other’s fields enrich professional education for both business and law students.

Academic Advisors: Professor William T. Allen, 212-998-0322 and Professor Rachel Kowal, 212-998-0053
