2016 Law Dean Search 

Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center  
Touro Law Center, located in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean, effective August 1, 2016.

Touro College was established in 1970 with the mission to educate, to serve, to perpetuate and to enrich the historic Jewish tradition of tolerance and dignity. Created as an independent institution that would support and strengthen the Jewish community, Touro has remained steadfast in its commitment to Jewish continuity and, more broadly, to humankind.

Since its inception, Touro has served and supported diverse communities, making world-class educational opportunities accessible to all members of society, across all races, nations, and creeds.

Touro’s core values are drawn from our Jewish heritage and the Jewish intellectual tradition, focusing simultaneously on individual development and the greater good. Touro provides men and women an environment that nurtures personal growth and intellectual inquiry in superior academic programs. Touro also offers neighborhood-based programs that serve, and encourage service to, under-resourced communities.

Touro’s students in turn become accomplished, thoughtful citizens who share and perpetuate our belief in equal access to quality education, the treatment of all human beings with integrity and respect, personal and professional ethics, and the building of a responsive and responsible society.

Touro Law Center is committed to providing students with a quality legal education and to developing lawyers who temper practical knowledge with perceptive judgment. We are dedicated to providing an educational experience that fully prepares students for the practice of law. Our curriculum is self-assessed and modified to ensure students are receiving practical skills experience that complements classroom learning and to ensure our curriculum parallels the real world experience of practicing law.

The ideal candidate will have a distinguished professional background that evidences the candidate's potential for leadership in achieving and maintaining excellence and innovation in teaching, research, scholarship and service in the public interest, as well as fundraising.

Candidates may demonstrate the capacity to fill the position by records of distinction in any of the following fields: legal education, the judiciary, the practice of law or government service.

The Search Committee will begin reviewing candidates immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Applications should include a statement summarizing interest, accomplishments, distinguishing strengths, leadership style, and commitment to research, teaching, and service; a detailed curriculum vitae; and a list of three references.
