Juris Doctor in
J.D. Concentration Family Law
Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University
Earliest start date
Students enrolled in the Family Law Concentration will receive instruction and training in those subject areas fundamental to family law practice, in addition to instruction in specialized, related subject areas of their choosing. The Concentration will take advantage of the law school’s robust family law curriculum, provide students interested in family law with a chance to receive intensive guidance on their course of study, and formally recognize students who decide to pursue specialized knowledge and skills in the field of family law.
Professors Barbara S. Barron, Theo Liebmann, Andrew Schepard, and Barbara Stark will serve as Faculty Concentration Advisors for this concentration. Students must meet with their concentration faculty advisor prior to applying to the concentration in order to discuss their suitability for the concentration.
Students should meet with their advisor as soon as they find themselves interested in the Concentration, but in no event later than the course selection deadline in their fourth semester of study. An advisor may permit a student to enroll in the Concentration at a later date, but only after determining that the student can realistically meet the requirements of the Concentration prior to graduation.
