Cardozo conferences, speakers, and panels provide a vital link between the classroom and the real world. The school's New York City location draws top historians, journalists, politicans, business and media executives, and lawyers from every field of practice. Students and faculty work together to plan first-rate events on critical and current issues.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, New York Times journalist Adam Liptak, First Amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams, and Edie Windsor, who successfully challenged the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) before the U.S. Supreme Court, have all visited Cardozo.
Other prominent events include The Wolf of Wall Street: Behind the Scenes at Stratton Oakmont, which featured attorneys from both sides of the case made famous by the Martin Scorsese movie; an in-depth look into the legal lessons of New York's stop-and-frisk policy; and a comprehensive examination of the issues surrounding the solitary confinement of minors in New York's prisons.
Cardozo Law is a community of intellectual vitality and vigourous debate, where premier events and conferences generate ideas that contribute to the city's legal landscape.
