Fellows are selected on the basis of academic ability, leadership potential and interest in pursuing a career in business law. Finalists may be invited to the Maurice A. Deane School of Law to interview with the fellowship Selection Committee, consisting of Hofstra Law faculty, administrators and alumni, and business law practitioners. The academic achievement and aptitude of each applicant is considered carefully by the Selection Committee, and an affirmative attempt is made to ensure the diversity of each entering class of fellows.

The Selection Committee cannot consider a fellowship application until the applicant has been accepted to Hofstra Law. Therefore, it is important that applicants complete their J.D. application early.

A completed fellowship application must include:

  • A resume
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • A personal statement describing the applicant’s experience and interest in studying and working in the field of business law

The application and further instructions can be found on the Admitted Student Portal. For more information, please email lawfellowships@hofstra.edu.
