J.D. Program

Our Campus

Few, if any, law schools can match the combination of our green, 240-acre campus and easy access to New York City.

Choosing a law school means choosing your new home for the next three years. Our campus offers the unique experience of being close to New York City, the hub of the world’s legal profession, yet removed from the daily distractions of the big city.

The campus provides all the amenities of a leading university and several that are unique to Hofstra, such as a bird sanctuary and a nationally recognized arboretum.
