More Renovations—All in Time for Cardozo’s 30th
It’s been a full and productive year, and while the focus of this issue
of Cardozo Life is fall 2005, our plans for the coming summer and fall
are exceptional and exciting.
As many of you know, over the past several years we have spent
more than $45 million to enlarge and renovate the Law School.
This summer, we embark on—and will complete—a Center for
Student Life, which will provide new and stunning student facilities.
The Center for Student Life has been championed by Kathy Greenberg, chair
of the Cardozo Board of Directors, who has been supported by generous
alumni, parents, board members, and friends. The architect’s renderings of the
third-floor student lounge and café don’t begin to illustrate how comfortable,
full of light, and convenient these spaces will be for our students. Not only
will the lounge have large, southern-facing windows looking out on downtown
New York, but new staircases will provide easy access to the second and
fourth floors where most of our classrooms are located.
In the coming months we will welcome two new faculty members, bringing
to ten the number of young scholars who have joined us in the past four
years. And after graduation this June, when more than 400 J.D. and LL.M.
candidates will receive their diplomas, our alumni will total nearly 9,000.
These numbers and our building projects are particularly auspicious because
in September we begin our 30th anniversary year. Among those who will
come to Cardozo to help mark this special occasion are Justice Stephen
Breyer; Linda Greenhouse, Supreme Court correspondent for The New York
Times; and many others to discuss such timely topics as terrorism and the
new Supreme Court.
I encourage you to visit Cardozo soon—in person, through the pages of this
magazine, or online.
