A Special Anniversary

Cardozo enjoyed an auspicious beginning 25 years ago. With a mandate from Yeshiva University, founding dean Monrad Paulson hired a faculty for a new law school that would offer humanistic studies and practical opportunities. That balance has been achieved beyond all expectation. Today the Law School boasts nearly 7,000 graduates who are achieving at the highest levels of the legal and business worlds as well as in the public sector. Therefore, it seems appropriate to feature some of our alumni judges and to record the reunions and commencement of last June.

This anniversary year will be special in many ways. Thirteen professors from around the world will visit. A two-day symposium on Nietzsche organized by Prof. Peter Goodrich will bring to campus some of the leading philosophers of our day. To meet the increasing needs of students and faculty, the University has embarked upon a multifaceted building improvement plan, which calls for the renovation and redecoration of the entire Cardozo facility. Highlights, which are outlined in a photo essay inside, include the expansion and renovation of the lobby level of the Law School, the building of a new Jacob Burns Moot Court Room, and the reconfiguration of the building’s facade and entrances.

We have much to celebrate as we mark a quarter-century and hope that as you read Cardozo Life you will feel some of the excitement being generated on campus.
