The Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law established the “Freedman Social Justice Fellowship Program” in 2016. This unique Fellowship was created to train law students throughout their three years to become skilled, thoughtful counselors and leaders who will be effective advocates to promote social justice and the public interest.
The Fellowship is named in honor of Monroe H. Freedman, one of the profession’s most influential legal scholars who left an indelible mark on Hofstra Law. As the Law School’s second dean from 1973-1977 and as a professor until the time of his death in 2015, Professor Freedman helped to define Hofstra Law and establish our reputation as a place where social justice and ethical lawyering form our backbone.
Applications for the 2019-2020 “Freedman Social Justice Fellowship Program” are now being accepted and are DUE BY 5pm, MONDAY, JULY 1, 2019.
