Diversity at Touro Law
At Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, we have always appreciated the importance of a diverse law school community and value the perspective that each student, faculty member and administrator brings to the law school. With this commitment, we are one of the most diverse law schools in the country, with approximately 38% our student body being people of color and 55% are women. Our 2016 Fall entering class was comprised of 32% minorities. The law center is dedicated to promoting, creating and maintaining an inclusive environment through various programs, trainings and innovative pipeline initiatives.
Touro Law Center is located adjacent to a federal courthouse and a state courthouse, and we incorporate these courthouses into our curriculum, which not only addresses all aspects of law in today’s changing world, but capitalizes on the proximity of the courthouses. In addition, our new 185,000 square foot building is a state-of-the-art facility with enhanced technology, classrooms, study spaces and more.
Touro Law Center offers students an education that truly bridges the gap between academic theory and legal practice. Our law campus enables students to take advantage of the synergies resulting from combining a legal education with the day-to-day workings of the courts, court-related agencies, and legal service providers.
In addition, Touro Law Center is home to the Public Advocacy Center. This wing of the building houses 14 furnished offices with telephone and internet access to local non-profit agencies free of charge. Touro Law students work with these organizations to satisfy their pro-bono requirements while developing an understanding of the problems facing the local community. The Public Advocacy Center, the only one of its kind in the nation, was included to have an impact on social justice, legal training and the lives of countless individuals in and beyond the local community.
Touro Law Center is at a unique time in its history. We invite you to learn more about us by visitng our website www.tourolaw.edu or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
