Hofstra Law


Importance of an Identity

Hofstra Law’s brand is the sum of what people know, believe and feel about us based on what we say, print and broadcast. It’s a reflection of our stakeholders’ connection with and loyalty to Hofstra Law. Everything that we say and do — the successes that we share, the services we provide, the advances in law that our faculty and alumni bring about — all these things help to build our brand.

Articulating Hofstra Law’s brand is essential to our continued success. Now more than ever, clear and compelling communications will help us to build awareness, promote prestige and tell our story.

Communications Resources

The Communications Resources site provides general guidelines for the visual articulation of the Hofstra Law brand, as well as templates and instructions for the application of our updated logo and related elements.

Email headers are 650 pixels wide and should only be used for emails. Email headers should not be resized or altered in any way. Headers should be used in emails promoting events, lectures and programs.

For custom email headers or event specific email headers, please contact Andrew Berman, Andrew.Berman@hofstra.edu or (516) 463-4142.

All Hofstra Law employees should use the branded email signature. Please download the email signature image and follow the instructions for updating your signature in Outlook.

These templates can be used for conference, lectures and events. Additional materials can be requested by contacting Andrew Berman, Andrew.Berman@hofstra.edu or (516) 463-4142.





When placing the logo be sure to leave space around the logo — at least the height of the shield on all sides. Never display the logo smaller than 2.25 inches wide. If the logo is sized any smaller, the letterforms become illegible. The logo should not be altered in any way.

For a high-res version of the logo or questions regarding the logo, please contact Tobie Accardi, Tobie-Lynn.Accardi@hofstra.edu or (516) 463-7061.
