The Kaplan Memorial Lecture Series honors the memory of Howard Kaplan, a prominent attorney whose legal career was characterized by devotion to the highest standards of the profession, and his wife, Iris Kaplan, an enthusiastic supporter of the lecture series. The series is supported by an endowment established by the Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation, Inc. and was initiated by Tony Kaplan ’82 to honor his parents.
The goal of the lecture series is to bring jurists of distinction and prominence to Hofstra Law to address students, faculty, alumni and the legal community on important and timely legal issues.
