This is a particularly important and exciting time in the history of Touro Law Center, as we will soon be moving into a state-of-the-art building in Central Islip, New York, strategically adjacent to both a state and federal courthouse. Central Islip is located near the South shore of Long Island, known for its many beaches and parks, yet only an hour and fifteen minutes from New York City. The new building includes, as its centerpiece, a spacious and modern 42,000 square foot library. The library contains over 430,000 volumes and equivalents, and provides access to many electronic resources. The more than 40 full-time committed and enthusiastic law faculty members provide a practice-oriented educational curriculum to approximately 800 students in both full-time day and part-time evening programs.
