Touro College is an independent institution of higher education under Jewish auspices, established in 1970 to transmit and perpetuate the Jewish heritage, as well as to serve the general community in keeping with the historic Jewish commitment to intellectual inquiry, the transmission of knowledge, social justice, and service to society. Approximately 18,000 students are currently enrolled in its various schools and divisions. Consistent with the College’s mission, Touro Law Center provides a diverse student body a rigorous, innovative, and immersive path towards becoming practice-ready professionals committed to promoting social justice and serving the needs of their clients and communities with compassion and integrity. Touro Law Center has approximately 486 students and loyal and committed worldwide alumni network of 6,500. Touro Law Center is one of two law schools on Long Island, an area of almost three million people, within a one hour drive to New York City.

    Touro Law Center was selected for a leadership role in New York State’s Justice for All program. Touro Law Center is the only law school in the region that has partnered with the courts, legal services corporations, and the local bar association to create the nationally recognized Community Legal Help Project which serves residents of Suffolk County in their neighborhoods, residents who would not otherwise have access to legal assistance. Touro Law Center faculty and students are in the community and are contributing significantly to help close the justice gap.
