Course aims to develop

Hofstra University School of Law will offer a new LL.M. program in Family Law starting this Fall. Hofstra is now one of the only schools in the country to offer a Family Law LL.M., and -- located near New York City -- it is the only Family Law LL.M. program on the East Coast of the United States.

Hofstra's website reports that the new program "meets the needs of all students, whether they seek to concentrate on matrimonial issues - marital dissolution, child custody, and property distribution; child protection issues - child abuse and neglect and the child welfare system; or one of the growing areas of subspecialty - international family law, legislative reform, or representing gay and lesbian families."

The Family Law LL.M. is a one-year program, but it can be taken over two years on a part-time basis.
