Student Scholars

Five Touro Law students presented recently in the Student Scholars Program co-sponsored by Touro Law Center, St John's University School of Law, and the Federal Bar Association - Eastern District of New York Chapter.  

The event provided an opportunity for students to present their work. They gave a 7-minute presentation followed by a 3-minute question and answer session. Touro students joined 5 student scholars from St. John’s who also participated. Each student had an assigned moderator who is a Federal Bar Association – EDNY Chapter Board Member introduce them and ask 1-2 questions about their work. The audience included student presenters, law school faculty, and FBA-EDNY Chapter Board members.

Professor Joan Foley, who serves as a Board Member of the Federal Bar Association - Eastern District of New Chapter stated, “We are proud of our Touro student presenters. This was a wonderful opportunity to highlight their writing, research, and oral communication skills.”
