    Launched in July 2013, the Center will serve as a national clearinghouse for the incubator and legal residency movement among law schools, as well as host an international conference on post-graduate legal education, provide training sessions for students, professors, bar leaders and members of the judiciary on how to create programs designed to increase access to justice and offer consulting services to those interested in post-graduate legal education.
  • The Institute for Land Use and Sustainable Development Law
    The Land Use and Sustainable Development Law Institute is dedicated to the research, education, and training in land use and sustainable development law. Land use and sustainability law literally shapes where we work and live – by providing a key means for addressing some of Long Island’s most pressing social concerns, including climate change and natural disaster resiliency; the creation of thriving urban centers and mainstreets; affordable housing; and the management of water resources, including storm water, waste water, and drinking water.
  • The Jewish Law Institute
    The Jewish Law Institute at Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center offers a scholarly and intellectual framework for the academic study of the Jewish legal experience. Under the direction of Professor Samuel J. Levine, the Institute acts as a center for the study and teaching of Jewish law throughout the United States, bringing together leading scholars, teachers, and lawyers, and serving as a clearinghouse for new ideas and independent research.
    The primary goal of the Jewish Law Institute is to explore the relevance of the Jewish legal tradition to American legal scholarship and legal education. Toward that goal, the Institute offers courses in Jewish law and conducts special programs of research, publications, and lectures.
    Reaching out to the broader community, the Jewish Law Institute assists other universities and law schools by advising professors who wish to teach courses in Jewish Law, and providing sample syllabi. The Institute is also closely involved in developing and expanding Touro Law Center’s permanent Judaica Collection, which serves as a vital resource for Rabbis, scholars, and the community at-large, as well as the Law Center’s Mobile Judaica Collection, which is loaned to law schools across the country that wish to offer courses in Jewish law.
