Fall 2012 Issue
Let us share with you some photos of 2 Court Square, our terrific new location in Long Island City, just minutes from Manhattan and all five boroughs.
On Monday, October 22, 2012, New York State Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman delivered the keynote address at a ribboncutting celebration marking the opening of CUNY Law's new home in Long Island City.
Walk into the new home of CUNY Law in Long Island City, and you might not immediately be able to tell that this curved, glass-and-steel building is about as environmentally friendly as they come.
It's hard to get students to pause for one moment, to glance up from smartphones or tablets as they charge from class to class.
On Friday, October 26, 2012, faculty, alumni, and staff came together in CUNY Law's new building to celebrate the reunion classes of 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2011.
It's not every day that you get to present a case before the U.S. Supreme Court, but that's what Jonathan Libby ('96) found himself doing earlier this year with United States v. Alvarez, also known as the "Stolen Valor" case.
After being on staff at the City University of New York Law Review, Danny Alicea ('13) now is in the driver's seat as editor-in- chief.
If you're looking for Ada George ('14) and she's not in class, chances are she's in her favorite spot, in a fifth-floor corner study room, with her papers spread out on the table.
City University of New York dean Dave Fields recently made the biggest bequest in CUNY Law's history: $1 million.
A generous donation by Gregory Koster, who was chief law librarian, associate dean for administration and finance, building project manager, and professor of law for 30 years at CUNY Law, is being recognized...
David F. Everett was an assistant district attorney for more than 12 years in Queens and Brooklyn before he launched his own civil trial and criminal defense law practice in New York more than 15 years ago.
To recognize staff members for their consistently great day-today work, the Law School held its first staff recognition awards ceremony on Monday, October 22, 2012, in the Dave Fields Auditorium.
We now own a building that does justice to the importance of the work we do. Law in the service of human needs is a vital mission, worthy of a beautiful place in which to work and flourish.
