Thank You! Your Support Helps Our Students Reach Their Fullest Potential

2012-2013 Donor Report

A Message From the Dean Dear Alumni and Friends, My first year as Dean has been filled with challenges and opportunities. The changing landscape of the legal profession and legal education has caused us to rethink how we prepare students for careers in the law. Toward this end, we have placed a renewed emphasis on skills development and opportunities for our students to gain real-world experience. We have launched new programs — such as our Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy, our Disaster Recovery Clinic and our semesterlong D.C. externship — and have established new scholarships to continue to attract outstanding students to Hofstra Law. These innovations and resources are made possible through the generosity of our alumni and friends, and for that I am extremely grateful. This Donor Report allows us the opportunity to thank you and demonstrate how your gifts to Hofstra Law are making a difference. Throughout the year I have come to know the Hofstra Law community better and have seen how the involvement of our alumni and friends impacts all aspects of what we do. Like all great institutions, Hofstra Law relies upon its community to make it stronger and more successful. Your financial support enables us to recruit bright and motivated students who will be exemplary lawyers; to have an impact on those in need in our surrounding neighborhoods through our clinics and pro bono student activities; to encourage initiative among our students by helping to fund their organizations, new ideas and efforts to help their fellow students; to develop innovative programs that focus on new and growing areas of the law; to go beyond the basics of classroom teaching to bring thought leaders to the Law School to inform our students and faculty and the legal community; and to support our faculty in their own scholarly endeavors. Beyond your financial support, your active service as organizational leaders, volunteers, event hosts, mentors and speakers further bolsters Hofstra Law and provides invaluable support to our students. You are truly our partners in shaping Hofstra Law and growing its reputation. I thank you again for all that you do and hope that we can continue to rely on your commitment and support. With appreciation,

Eric Lane Dean and Eric J. Schmertz Distinguished Professor of Public Law and Public Service


You are truly our partners in shaping Hofstra Law and growing its reputation. I thank you again for all that you do and hope that we can continue to rely on your commitment and support.”

How Your Gifts

Made a Difference


Participating in Moot Court provided me with essential tools to become a better advocate and prepared me for entering the profession as an immigration attorney.” — Elanie Cintron ’13 Lichter Immigration, Moot Court President, 2012-2013




Perhaps no gift has a greater impact than that of a scholarship. For the student, it means the chance to pursue a legal career and achieve a significant and, in many cases, lifelong goal. Scholarships enable us to attract top students in an increasingly competitive admissions environment and reward those students who have excelled. In 2012-2013, 58 percent of our students received Law School scholarship support. Donors helped to provide scholarship assistance through their gifts to named endowed scholarships, named annual scholarships, the Law School Scholarship Fund, the Public Justice Fellowships and the Annual Fund.

This scholarship has relieved the financial burden that accompanies attending law school and allowed me to focus all of my energy on my academic studies.

Veterans Legal Clinic

Hofstra Law in D.C. Students


Practical Lawyering Skills Disaster Recovery Clinic In response to Superstorm Sandy’s devastating impact on Long Island, Hofstra Law established our Disaster Recovery Clinic under the direction of Professor Michael Haber. The clinic engages 2L and 3L students in providing legal assistance, under supervision, on a wide range of issues affecting individuals and local small businesses as they recover from Sandy. The clinic was made possible through generous grants from the Robin Hood Foundation and the Long Island Community Foundation.

Veterans Legal Clinic The students of Hofstra Law’s Veterans Law Student Association demonstrated their commitment to helping address the legal service needs of Long Island’s veterans by organizing a Veterans Legal Clinic at the Law School in April and November of 2013. Organized in cooperation with the Nassau County Bar Association, Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano ’87 and the Nassau County Veterans Services Agency, the clinic was open to all veterans at no charge and provided free consultations with attorneys who specialize in VA benefits and claims, family law, Social Security disability, employment, USERRA, housing, bankruptcy, debtor/creditor matters, landlord-tenant disputes, elder law, tax, wills, estates, Medicare and Medicaid, and more. The students were instrumental in enlisting the volunteer attorneys, counselors and advocates and conducted intakes. To date, the clinic has provided more than 150 veterans with free legal services.

Occupy Wall Street Independent Study Clinic Hofstra Law students were also the inspiration for the development of our Occupy Wall Street Independent Study Clinic. The clinic was an outgrowth of conversations between Professor Stefan Krieger and two students in his evidence class who wanted to do something to highlight the issues being raised by the protesters. The

clinic was a collaborative effort that involved faculty in the Criminal Law, Community and Economic Development, Mediation, and Youth Advocacy clinics. Eventually, the faculty and students decided to focus their efforts on representing an individual protester who was arrested and beaten in the demonstrations. Ultimately, the case — the first Occupy Wall Street case against the City of New York in U.S. District Court — was settled, and a new case has just been filed.

Hofstra Law in D.C. Externship Program In the fall of 2013, Hofstra Law began offering a full-time, semester-long externship program in Washington, D.C., for third-year law students. The program, organized by Scott Glick ’81, program director and a senior counsel in the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, allows students the opportunity to work as unpaid legal externs at an approved congressional committee, federal government agency, or nonprofit or public interest organization. In addition, Glick leads a weekly seminar that explores constitutional, statutory and regulatory issues from multiple perspectives. Among the special guests are a panel of alumni working at various agencies in D.C. The inaugural student group includes: Stephen Atwell, U.S. Department of Justice, Environmental and Natural Resources Division, Environmental Enforcement Section Allison Baxter, American Bar Association, Center on Children and the Law Lauren Murphy, National Labor Relations Board David Pratt, Office of U.S. Representative Charles Rangel Ulrica Sheridan, Office of U.S. Representative Charles Rangel Michael Smith, Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, Bankruptcy Judges Erin Thorn, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Office of Principal Legal Advisor

Hofstra Law Review 40th Anniversary: Students with the Honorable John Ashcroft, left

Hofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal 30th Anniversary: Students with NLRB Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce, center


Student Activities and Services The Annual Fund enhances the student experience by supporting the programs and activities of student organizations, assisting trial teams in traveling to and participating in competitions, funding professional development programming, and supporting events that bring alumni to campus to share their law school and career experiences. Hofstra Law also receives designated gifts that provide additional funding for student activities.

Professional Success and Leadership Development Hofstra Law’s Professional Success and Leadership Development program, now in its fourth year, teaches students how to communicate their unique skills, abilities and leadership styles to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive and entrepreneurial legal marketplace. The program’s signature event is the annual Success Strategies Boot Camp, which focuses on teaching students how to develop persuasive oral and written communication skills, understand different communication styles, present themselves in a polished and professional manner and prepare for interviews so as to make the best impression. This program has been generously funded by a gift from Roberta Karp ’83.

Milestone Journal Anniversaries Gifts to the Annual Fund supplement student activity fees so that organizations can host special events, particularly those that engage alumni with an affinity to their group. In fiscal year 2013, both the Hofstra Law Review and the Hofstra Labor & Employment Law

Journal celebrated milestone anniversaries — their 40th and 30th, respectively. On October 15, 2012, the Law Review presented a wonderful evening in New York City celebrating the impact of the journal and the work of its contributors and staff in creating a publication that has made its mark on the legal community. Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft was the special guest speaker. The Labor & Employment Law Journal held its event on February 7, 2013, at Dechert, hosted by alumnus Andrew L. Oringer ’84. The event brought journal alumni together and featured Mark Gaston Pearce, chairman of the National Labor Relations Board, and David B. Feldman ’82, founding editor-in-chief of the journal.

Mock Trial Competitions This past year, students successfully competed in several mock trial competitions. In June 2013, Kaitlyn Flynn 3L won second place at Baylor Law School’s 2013 Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition. In October 2013, Kaitlyn, along with Jana McNulty 3L and Eleni Aristo 3L, won the Peter James Johnson National Civil Rights Trial Competition, the only national civil rights trial competition in the country. The students received training from Adjunct Professor Jared Rosenblatt ’03 and Professor Barbara Barron ’84, the director of the Trial Techniques Program and Student Advocacy Programs, and faculty advisor for the Moot Court Board. 2012-2013 Donor Report


Innovation The Maurice A. Deane School of Law began with a vision to be a different kind of law school. The development of clinics and other skills-development programs, such as Trial Techniques, were the earliest examples of our innovative approach to legal education. That focus continues today through new programs that address the most pressing issues of the day while giving our students unique opportunities to advance public policy and legislation, explore cutting-edge legal developments and meet the very real needs of our surrounding communities.

Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy In April 2013, Hofstra Law launched our Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy. The institute’s mission includes developing and implementing new methods for training students in order to broaden access to quality health care for everyone and to create a more just health care system. In October, the institute held its first major symposium, “Affordable Healthcare’s Next Act,” which explored the challenges the Affordable Care Act presents, the opportunities it offers, and the gaps it has failed to fill as well as the ones it has newly created. The event was part of the Garfunkel Wild, P.C. Thought Leadership in Action Speaker Series, sponsored by the firm, and featured partner Judith A. Eisen ’86. The Gitenstein Institute, which is led by Janet L. Dolgin, the Jack and Freda Dicker Distinguished Professor of Health Care Law, was established through a generous $1 million donation from the Kermit Gitenstein Foundation and the efforts of Gitenstein Foundation head Steven Schlesinger ’76, a Hofstra Law alumnus and managing partner of the law firm Jaspan Schlesinger LLP. 20

Access to Justice Incubator With generous initial commitments from alumnae Judith Livingston ’79, Lorna Goodman ’75 and Elissa Epstein ’78, the New York State Unified Court System and area law firms, Hofstra Law is launching an Access to Justice Incubator. This new legal services center, where recent Hofstra Law graduates will work under the supervision of an experienced managing attorney, will further bridge the gap in pro bono legal representation in several critical areas of need for low-income individuals and families in Nassau County. The incubator is an innovative response to Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman’s focus on the desperate need to provide greater civil legal services for indigent individuals in New York, as well as the Nassau County Bar and judiciary’s recognition of this problem in our own community. The incubator will further serve as an apprenticeship program to better prepare the next generation of the legal profession for practicing law. Initially, the postgraduate fellows will be trained to serve as court evaluators and attorneys for individuals alleged to be incapacitated for health care decision-making, and provide representation for individuals who are facing foreclosure on or eviction from their homes.

2012-2013 Donor Report


Faculty Scholarship Our outstanding faculty is among the most prolific and often cited in the United States. A recent study by the University of St. Thomas School of Law ranked Hofstra Law No. 33 among law schools nationally for its scholarly impact and No. 5 among New York state law schools. Their work advances legal discourse, benefits our students and brings renown to the Law School. In addition, through our annual conference and lecture program, Hofstra Law brings nationally known scholars and practitioners to the Law School to provide a forum for exploring important legal topics, and to benefit from their expertise.
