Enjoy the Best of New York City Plus the Amenities of a College Campus
Situated on the 244-acre Hofstra University campus, law students have access to the resources available throughout the Hofstra community. During the academic year, the campus is a bustling environment with theatrical performances, concerts, sporting events, and academic lectures, not to mention attractions at the Nassau Coliseum, just steps from campus.
Here to Help
From the very beginning of your transformative law school journey, the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) will provide you with the assistance, support, and guidance you need to thrive.
Participating in our student organizations helps foster the social skills you need as an aspiring attorney as you connect with kindred spirits, perform public service and develop leadership skills.
Diversity matters to us.
We believe that having a community of differing perspectives and backgrounds — income, geographic, ethnic and other — enhance our intellectual and social life at the Law School. We have developed unique programming to support our diversity efforts and our diversity student organizations.
