Hofstra Law is also accepting GRE scores in lieu of the LSAT due to the cancellation of the LSATs. LEARN MORE

In response to the COVID-19 crisis and the cancellation of LSATs, Hofstra Law will accept GRE scores in lieu of the LSAT.

If you have already taken the LSAT you do not qualify to be a GRE applicant, as we are accepting the GRE in lieu of the LSAT and not as a replacement of the LSAT exam.

For students taking the GRE:

Four score reports are included for free with GRE registration. These free score reports can be sent out on test day at the test center. At the very end of the test, if you don’t cancel the test, you can select up for four school recipients for your free scores. You must provide Hofstra Law’s school code 4813. The scores selected on test day will be sent directly to Hofstra Law, and will be received in 10-15 days.

For students who have already taken the GRE:

Log into your ETS account and order a score report to be sent to Hofstra Law using school code 4813. Your scores will be sent directly to Hofstra Law, and will be received in 3-7 days.

You must select that all of your scores are sent to Hofstra Law and not just individual test results.

Our law students enjoy a 14:1 student-to-teacher ratio, can enroll in extensive research and writing courses, have access to a study abroad program and learn in strong practical, skills-based experiential learning programs.

Full-Time and Part-Time Programs

The J.D. program has full-time and part-time day programs; the admissions requirements are the same for both.

The part-time program is for students who are unable to carry a full five-course load, but the part-time classes still meet five days a week so that law school can be completed in four years.

Joint J.D./M.B.A. and J.D./M.P.H. Programs

In addition to the traditional Juris Doctor program, Hofstra Law offers joint J.D./M.B.A. and J.D./M.P.H. programs.
