About

The Commentator is the official student newspaper of New York University School of Law and a seven-time winner of the American Bar Association’s Top Law School Newspaper Award. Founded over 50 years ago in 1966 as a biweekly print publication, The Commentator was re-launched as an online newspaper in 2015. You can view past issues of The Commentator here.

Today, The Commentator publishes content pertinent to both the Law School and the wider legal community. Additionally, writers cover art and culture, fashion, sports and entertainment, politics and government, and just about everything else. The Commentator also features satire and a robust opinion section where contributors are encouraged to express themselves on issues of their choosing.

As the oldest and only student organization at NYU Law dedicated to publishing original student content, we are the voice of the student body. If you would like to be part of the team that amplifies and champions that voice, send us an email at lawcommentator@gmail.com.
