|The above LSAT and GPA data pertain to the fall 2011 entering class.
|New York University School of Law does not rank students and does not maintain records of cumulative averages for its students. For the specific purpose of awarding scholastic honors, however, unofficial cumulative averages are calculated by the Office of Records and Registration.
Students' grades at New York University School of Law depend largely upon the grade received in the final examination. Grades are generally not provided for courses or sections in which the student is not officially registered.
For JD and graduate students, the letter grading system corresponding to respective GPA used is:
|All students must maintain satisfactory academic progress. For JD students, satisfactory academic progress is understood to mean completion of the required first-year curriculum during the first year of enrollment with a grade of D or better in all courses. Thereafter, completion (with a grade of D or better and no more than eight hours of "uncompensated" D grades) of sufficient credits of coursework in each semester to allow for accumulation of a total of at least 83 credits, including 30 accumulated in the first year, by the end of the third year. A minimum of 12 credits must be completed each semester.
Students may elect to register for a total of 2 courses on a credit/fail basis during their final four semesters, provided the faculty member teaching the course lists the course as open to such registration.
The Registrar's Office provides students with copies of their official transcripts or, upon the authorization of students, sends copies of official transcripts directly to them.

|The New York University Moot Court Board is a student-run, honorary organization that combines legal scholarship with oral advocacy. Staff members are selected from the first-year class on the basis of a brief writing competition held in early spring. Each year, between 30 and 35 students out of approximately 150 applicants are offered positions on the board. As second-year students, Moot Court Board staff members, under the guidance of third-year editors, choose to join either the NYU Law Moot Court Casebook Division or the NYU Law Moot Court Competitions Division.
In addition, the New York University Moot Court Board administers the annual Orison S. Marden Competition, one of the country's best-known intra-school moot court competitions.
The NYU Moot Court Casebook, published annually, is the most widely recognized and utilized set of moot court problems in the nation. (More than 110 law schools have current subscriptions.)
New York University School of Law is represented in a number of moot court competitions nationwide. The law school also participates in the National Moot Court Competition and the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
