Touro Law Announces Director of Externship Programs

September 22, 2009

Central Islip, NY – Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Lewis Silverman as the Director of Externship Programs. In his new role, Professor Silverman will be responsible for coordinating placements and supervising the Business Technology Externship, Civil Practice Externship, Criminal Law Externship, Judicial Externship, U.S. Attorney Externship and the independent externships. Previously, externships were overseen by the Director of Clinical Programs. However, with an expanding clinical program – adding two new clinics – and increasing requests for externships by students, Dean Raful has administratively separated externships from clinics.

"Professor Silverman has always been actively involved in our clinical and externship programs,” said Dean Raful. “His leadership as Director of Externship Programs will provide the necessary enthusiasm and energy to further expand the program and provide additional opportunities for our students. I know he will do an outstanding job as the Director of Externship Programs and look forward to working closely with him in the months ahead."

Professor Silverman is also the director of the Family Law clinic at Touro Law Center and teaches in the area of Family Law.


Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center has a new 185,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art law campus adjacent to and working with a state and a federal courthouse in Central Islip, New York. Touro’s new campus provides a one-of-a kind learning model for law students, combining a rigorous curriculum taught by expert faculty with a practical courtroom experience. Touro, which has a student body of approximately 750 and an alumni base of nearly 5,000, offers full- and part-time J.D. programs as well as graduate law programs.
