Assuming you have an undergraduate degree already, U.S. law schools seem fairly flexible about letting people study for another degree at the same time.
I'm not sure why you would want to do this, though. Problems:
(1) it would be more efficient to complete one degree first and then start the other.
(2) having a foreign law degree would give you very little advantage if you want to practice law in the U.S.
(3) if you just want to practice law in your own country, why not just get an LLM? That's both cheaper and easier.
(4) U.S. law degrees are extremely expensive, and people educated outside the U.S. seldom get more than 1/2 tuition scholarships. Also, you wouldn't be eligible for federal loans, which is how U.S. students finance their legal education.

It seems like a waste of time and money. I doubt there are any American JDs at NYU doing this program.

you will encounter in doing that.
You're wasting not only your money but also your time in that kind of plan.
Why not try Cross-Enroll? enroll in both schools legally but don't take same subjects.
In that case you are enrolled in both schools but will graduate only in one school.
