Letter from the Editor: The Commentator’s 50th Anniversary

Written by Naeem Crawford-Muhammad, Editor-in-Chief

Dear readers,

Thank you for your ongoing support of The Commentator, the official student newspaper of New York University School of Law. 2015-2016 was a special year for the paper and saw us move from being a printed paper to an online platform: www.nyulawcommentator.org. This year promises to be another special year for us and happens to be our 50th anniversary. Founded five decades ago in 1966 as a weekly, print newspaper, The Commentator remains dedicated to bringing original content created by  NYU Law students to the wider legal community.

At The Commentator, our contributors have the freedom to determine their own areas of interest. In the past year alone, The Commentator has published scores of articles covering the thorniest issues of the day. From current events like the 2016 presidential election and the ongoing Supreme Court vacancy, to more casual and fun reads like our fashion column highlighting the best-dressed students at the Law School and our satire section, Uncommentable, which uses humor to shed light on everyday situations faced by law students. With The Commentator, you can keep up-to-date on the latest events at NYU Law as well as use our platform to share your opinion on an issue of your choice with the world.

While law school is tough and spare time is precious, we hope that you will spend some of your down-time with us. If you’re interested in writing, editing, or photography and would like to learn more about roles with The Commentator, email us at law.commentator@nyu.edu.

Kind regards,

Naeem Crawford-Muhammad,

One thought on “Letter from the Editor: The Commentator’s 50th Anniversary”

  1. I find The Commentator extremely interesting and full of unique articles, ideas and comments. It keeps me abreast of what’s going on in the political arena, the fashion world, as well as, what’s happening day-to-day around the city as it relates to the students. I feel connected and I enjoy the satirical articles & puzzles the best. You don’t have to be a NYU law student to enjoy The Commentator – Keep up the good work Editor & staff writers!
