Office of Student Services

Touro Law Center is student-centered.

The Office is administered by Assistant Dean for Student Services Charlotte D. Taylor. She provides general advising and counseling, including:

  • course selection
  • long-range course planning
  • early graduation
  • adjusting to law school
  • stress and anxiety

To make an appointment, email or call 631.761.7050. 

She is responsible for key areas, including:

  • Disability Resources. Assistant Dean Charlotte D. Taylor provides confidential support for students with physical, learning, or other disabilities. Services include the development of an individualized accommodation plan, including appropriate examination modifications, such as extra time. Medical or other professional documentation may be required. To find out more, review the Handbook for Students with Disabilities or contact Dean Taylor via email or by phone at (631) 761-7050.
