New York Laws

The most storied and heavily populated city in the U.S., New York was founded nearly 400 years ago as "New Amsterdam." While New York predates the United States and has gone through several radical transformations in its time, all five boroughs are subject to the laws of New York State and the U.S. federal government. It's easy to get lost and confused in such a dense, bustling city, which is why FindLaw has compiled numerous legal directories and articles. Here you will find information about the city's courts and access to free or low-cost legal services, in addition to primers on various legal issues that New Yorkers may encounter.
