The school has been praised in a study by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, "Educating L...awyers: Preparation for the Profession of Law," for being one of the few law schools in the country to prepare students for practice through instruction in theory, skills, and ethics. Founded in 1983, the CUNY School of Law consistently ranks among the top 10 law schools in the country in clinical training.
