High School Law Institute: Fall 2021-Spring 2022 Application

Welcome to the High School Law Institute (HSLI) Application! We are excited to offer our program again this year. Please note that, due to current circumstances, our program will be remote for the Fall 2021 semester. Because a decision has not yet been made for the Spring 2022 semester, we ask that applicants live within commuting distance of either the NYU or Columbia campus to be able to attend in-person classes if possible for the Spring 2022 term.

This application will close at 11:59 PM ET on August 25, 2021. Admission decisions will be emailed by September 3rd. Please note that if you are selected for the program, orientation will be held on September 11th. The first day of classes will be September 25th.

Note: The application must be completed in one sitting. To avoid losing your work or having the application time out, we highly recommend preparing your responses to the essay and short response questions prior to starting to fill out the application. You can do this using a word processing software or type it out in an email and copy and pasting your typed responses into the application page.

Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
