Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center is a Jewish institution that offers full-time, part-time day, and part-time 4 and 5-year evening programs as well as a two-year accelerated program for students seeking to earn a J.D. degree.

“The three most important things at our school are students, students, students,” said Dean Harry Ballan. “We want students to be educated and it is important to be a generalist before a specialist.”

Located on the south shore of Long Island, it is adjacent to a federal courthouse and a state courthouse. But it is also near a community with gang activity and immigrants. That has given students the opportunity to work with those in need.

“Our role is to be a good neighbor,” Ballan said. “We provide services to the community through our clinics.”

This includes assisting veterans. The school is helping to try to eliminate veteran homelessness in Suffolk county.

“What we have done for the homeless vets is something I am very proud of,” Ballan said. 

Beyond the required coursework, students may create their own unique law school experience, choosing from a curriculum that includes an array of practice-oriented offerings and opportunities for hands-on learning including clinics, skills courses and externships. Currently, concentrations are offered in four areas: Aging & Longevity Law, Criminal Law, Land Use & Sustainable Development Law and Solo & Small Practice Law.

Its focus on Aging and Longevity Law brings many issues together, including trusts and estates, torts, philanthropy, etc.
