Business Law
Located just minutes from Wall Street, the epicenter of international finance, Brooklyn Law School is the ideal place to study the evolution of business practice. Our acclaimed business law faculty includes both long-standing members with deep roots in the business law community, and brilliant young scholars on the cutting edge of the discipline. Our foundational courses provide a thorough grounding in the way law governs organizations, from small businesses and privately held companies to large corporate enterprises with many subsidiaries and affiliates. 

A range of advanced course offerings, including seminars and specialty courses, provides opportunities for students to delve into specific areas more deeply. Our Dennis J. Block Center for the Study of International Business Law, now in its third decade, sponsors a variety of events on contemporary international business issues and draws influential scholars and practitioners to the Law School. In addition, the new Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation unites the Law School’s existing diverse business and commercial law programs by providing a forum for scholarship that offers new perspectives on, and solutions to, real world business law and regulatory issues.

Refugee and Immigration Law
In a time of increasing globalization and concern about issues of national security, refugee and immigration law has never mattered more. Our refugee and immigration law faculty includes scholars, policy makers, and practitioners who have made substantial contributions to the field, including in the areas of asylum law, refugee law, and international human rights law. These experts teach and practice against the backdrop of New York City, a hub of immigration practice and home to two immigration courts, two asylum offices, and one of the busiest federal Circuit Court immigration dockets in the country.

Intellectual Property Law
With the increasing exchange of information in cyberspace, IP law is one of the fastest-evolving branches of the law. Our curriculum addresses the pressing need for new policy, both domestic and in the international arena, and a new generation of tech-savvy lawyers.

Our IP law faculty includes a range of talented legal experts who are well-known for their outstanding contributions to the field. Our New York City location, home to Silicon Alley and the world’s media capital, offers the advantage of a legal education that is part classroom study, part immersion. Students’ fieldwork will be with the very entrepreneurs, startup companies, and emerging technologies that are driving change.

The Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) is the hub for exploring legal issues such as entrepreneurship and providing effective legal representation for new commercial and not-for-profit businesses. CUBE also trains the next generation of business lawyers to advise and participate in these sectors. The Center reinforces and capitalizes on Brooklyn’s role as a haven for business, media, energy, technology, creative arts, and social enterprise innovators.
