Juris Doctor in
J.D. Concentration Criminal Law and Procedure Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University
Students enrolled in the Criminal Law and Procedure Concentration will receive instruction and training in those subjects and skills that are fundamental to the real-world practice of criminal law.
Professors Barbara S. Barron, Alafair S. Burke, Robin Charlow, Brenner Fissell, Fred Klein, Elizabeth Nevins, and Ellen Yaroshefsky will serve as faculty concentration advisors for this Concentration. Concentration faculty advisors may modify the Concentration requirements in exceptional circumstances upon notice to the Dean.
Guidance from a student’s concentration faculty advisor is an important element of successful completion of the Concentration. A concentration faculty advisor must approve a student’s enrollment in the Concentration. Students should meet with their advisor as soon as they find themselves interested in the Concentration, but in no event later than the course selection deadline for their fourth semester of study (or fifth semester of study for part-time students). An advisor may permit a student to enroll in the Concentration at a later date, but only after determining that the student can realistically meet the requirements of the Concentration prior to graduation.
