Legal Ethics Fellowship

For decades, Hofstra Law has been a leader in the field of legal ethics. Starting with the pioneering work of Professors Monroe Freedman and Roy Simon, the Law School has distinguished itself for ethics programming and teaching. Because lawyers must understand and deal with ethics issues every day, we have always sought to provide students a solid foundation in legal ethics. Such a foundation is important for all lawyers, but is now essential for the increasing number of lawyers who specialize in the field of legal ethics.

Life on Campus

Few, if any, law schools can match the combination of the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University’s green, 240-acre campus and its easy access to New York City, the hub of the world’s legal profession. Students living on campus in graduate housing enjoy a setting that is home to a nationally recognized arboretum, yet is less than an hour by train from Manhattan.
