Touro College- Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center
225 Eastview Drive
Central Islip, NY 11722

Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, or Touro Law, is located on the south shore of Long Island adjacent to and working with a federal courthouse and a state courthouse. In addition, the 185,000-square-foot building is a state-of-the-art facility with enhanced technology, classrooms, study spaces and more.

Touro Law Center moved to its Central Islip location in 2007. Women make up 48 percent of the total enrollment, and minorities, 25 percent. The low student to faculty ratio, approximately 16 students per faculty, makes for an engaging learning opportunity.

While a Touro education prepares students for a career in virtually any field of law, the law center’s curriculum is particularly rich in the areas of criminal, family, health, international, business, intellectual property and public interest law. Touro students have to complete 40 hours of pro bono work as a requirement for graduation.

The first of its kind in the nation, the Public Advocacy Center houses a number of legal advocacy groups within the law school. These organizations work to provide services to the local community and provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on skills training while developing an understanding of the problems facing the local community.
