Hoffman was a prominent pioneer in the establishment of university-based legal education. He helped to found the University of Maryland Law School in 1816 and was its first professor. His Course of Legal Study played a critical role in the development of law school curricula and provided guidance to hundreds of antebellum law students and attorneys. Story endorsed this book, saying it embodied a set of qualities "calculated to elevate the moral as well as intellectual character of the profession" More than a handbook, it provided a systematic course that encompassed jurisprudence, philosophy, economics, literature and personal behavior.
