Please note, the above application is for the 2018 program – dates and cost will change for the 2019 program.

Application Deadline

The application deadline is Friday, March 15, 2019.

On acceptance, students will receive a letter that permits them to move forward with the financial aid process.

Because there are a limited number of spots in the program, applicants must include a statement of interest when submitting their application.

Eligibility Criteria, Academic Requirements and Grading


The program is open to all law students who have completed all first-year day courses and who are in good academic standing at an ABA-accredited law school. (Maurice A. Deane School of Law students must have at least a 2.2 GPA.)

Note: If you attend a law school other than Hofstra Law, you must submit a letter from your law school verifying that you meet the above requirements.

Academic Requirements

All students are required to enroll in a 3-credit course. There will also be required field trips to local legal institutions.


Hofstra Law’s grading standards apply, and Maurice A. Deane School of Law transcripts will be sent out. Acceptance of credits earned during the program is subject to the determination of your home school.

Grades are based on an examination in each course. The grading policy in the program is the same as in the regular course of study at Hofstra Law. The grade scale is: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D and F.
