In the 2017 October edition of preLaw magazine, top law schools were graded based on overall breadth of their curricular offerings in different disciplines, including Health Law. Among 35 law schools evaluated for Health Law offerings, Hofstra Law was awarded an ‘A’ rating – listed in top 15. preLaw defines an ‘A’ as a score of 90% or higher.
The article goes on to highlight one of the newest Health Law initiatives from Hofstra Law – an interactive legal mapping of nationwide advance care planning laws in each state. The innovative tool was developed by teams of Hofstra Law students under the direction of Janet Dolgin, Jack and Freda Dicker Distinguished Professor of Health Care Law at Hofstra Law and the director of the Hofstra Law’s Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy. Professor Dolgin teaches the online course, Biostatistics and the Law, as part of the online Master’s in Health Law programs at Hofstra Law.
