Father’s Day Feature | Pace Law School 06/16/2024

Happy Father's Day! 💙💛 Today's we're featuring a special father/daughter duo of Haub Law Alums. They share their journey to law school and how they are now enjoying so much in common.

After the stock market crash of 1987, Mitchell Dinkin ‘92 made the decision to pivot from his aspirations in a career on Wall Street to law school. “I changed my undergraduate major to Political Science and from there law school seemed like an obvious path. I had a strong skillset in comprehension, analysis, and a passion for arguing.” Being a White Plains native also made what was then Pace Law School a natural choice for Mitchell.

Mitchell’s daughter, Amanda, a newly minted 2024 Haub Law graduate made the decision to also attend Haub Law based on her father’s positive experience. Now that Amanda has officially graduated from law school, she notes that it is fun to converse with her father in “legalese” and that both can learn from each other. “Coming to law school was a very rewarding experience, although very challenging,” said Amanda. Both her and her father agree that the amount of personal and professional growth that occurs in law school is inspiring, and they are glad to have that journey in common.

Debates about democracy are everywhere. Extremists, whether on the streets of Washington or Brasilia, perpetrate violence under the banner of democracy. But what do we mean when we talk about democracy?

Pace I Haub Environmental Law Professor Joshua Galperin’s latest article, A Restatement of Democracy, published in Villanova Law Review, provides an analytically useful model of democracy that legal scholars can rely on when thinking about democratic institutions while at the same time championing an optimistic vision of democracy that can sustain constructive self-governance into the future.

🎬 Please join us for a special screening of “How to Sue the Klan: The Legacy of the Chattanooga Five” on Monday, June 17th at 6 pm at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, Moot Court Room, Ge**er Glass Law Center, 78 North Broadway, White Plains, New York. An event flyer is attached. This is the next film in the Commission's film discussion series.

"How to Sue the Klan" was inspired by a historic 1982 civil case involving Haub Law Professor Randolph McLaughlin and Adjunct Professor Betty Lewis. The film shows the story of how five Black women from Chattanooga used legal ingenuity to take on the Ku Klux Klan, fighting to hold them accountable for their crimes and bring justice to their community. Their victory set a legal precedent that continues to inspire the ongoing fight against organized hate.

🎤Panel discussion to follow the film includes:

Randolph McLaughlin, featured in the film, Professor of Law at Haub School of Law at Pace University (Haub School of Law)
Betty Lewis, featured in the film, Adjunct Professor at Haub School of Law at Pace University

New York Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan to Receive Robert S. Tucker Prize for Prosecutorial Excellence | Pace Law School 06/05/2024

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University will bestow the 2024 Robert S. Tucker Prize for Prosecutorial Excellence on Bridget G. Brennan, New York City’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor, in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the field of criminal prosecution and excellence in prosecutorial practice.

“Bridget Brennan has had an impressive career demonstrating her commitment to the pursuit of justice as a narcotics prosecutor and as an advocate for alternatives to prosecution,” said Haub Law Dean Horace E. Anderson Jr. “Her tenacity in leading the fight against drug abuse in New York is truly admirable. A prestigious jury of prosecutors, former prosecutors, criminal law experts and law professors has selected her for the Tucker Prize in recognition of the imagination and compassion with which she deals with a serious social issue, one that touches all too many lives in the New York area and beyond.”

New York has long been at the forefront of the drug crisis and fueled by the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the crisis has grown substantially worse. Under Brennan’s leadership, the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor has developed expertise to meet challenges posed by each new phase of the deadly opioid epidemic.

Brennan will be presented with the Tucker Prize at a ceremony this fall at Pace University in Manhattan, NY.

New York Chief Judge Rowan D. Wilson Delivers Inspiring Commencement Address at Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University | Pace Law School 05/21/2024

Chief Judge Rowan D. Wilson of the New York State Court of Appeals delivered Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University’s 46th commencement ceremony address to graduates at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York.

Judge Wilson also received the Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, the highest honor conferred by the Law School, recognizing his lifelong contributions to public service and the legal profession.

In a speech peppered with lawyer jokes that lightheartedly emphasized the often poor public perception of lawyers, Chief Judge Wilson challenged students to do their part to build a reputation of trustworthiness.

“I encourage you to keep in mind the following three propositions as you wind your way through your lives in the law: One: Put honesty first, whether you are interacting with courts, clients, adversaries or colleagues. Two: Remember that the historical core of your profession is compassion, not craftiness. Three: Devote some meaningful measure of your time to helping those who cannot afford your assistance, but who desperately need it,” Chief Judge Wilson said.

Chief Judge Wilson is the first person of color to lead the Court of Appeals, New York state’s highest court, located in Albany. As Chief Judge, he is responsible for the administration of the entire New York’s Unified Court System, which has 16,000 employees, a $3 billion budget, and administers justice to a population of nearly 20 million residents.

During the ceremony, 252 students received JD degrees, 10 received Master of Laws in Comparative Legal Studies, 7 received Master of Laws in Environmental Law, and 1 received a Doctor of Juridical Science degree. This includes 64 students who completed Advanced Certificates and four students who graduated with an additional joint degree from the Yale School of the Environment. Of particular note are 25 part-time students.

A Family Legacy Continues | Pace Law School 05/12/2024

Happy Mother’s Day! 🌸 On this special day, we’re featuring a mother/daughter duo with a strong connection to Haub Law.

Michelle Feighan '25 comes from a family with a rich Haub Law legacy. Her mom, Patricia (Tricia) Feighan '94, was the daughter of Philip B. Blank, Haub Law's renowned former Associate Dean for External Affairs and Professor of Law. Tricia fondly remembers her father as a champion of her dream to pursue a career in law. “He was a huge advocate for the Law School and for women to pursue legal careers. He encouraged me early on to pursue my dream of following in his footsteps," Tricia shared.

While it was at an early age that Tricia started thinking about going to law school, the decision came a bit later for Michelle. “As a history major in my undergraduate studies, I had a strong interest in American History,” said Michelle. “I developed an appreciation for the American justice system and enjoyed learning about how the development of our country shaped our laws and the U.S. Constitution. I noticed how a legal degree could advance someone’s skills and knowledge, and also give them the ability to bring positive change to people’s lives."

For both Tricia and Michelle, attending the same law school has played such a positive role in both of their lives and careers. “My mother has truly supported me along the way and helped me pursue this path,” said Michelle. “When deciding which school to attend, I had the chance to listen to her experiences as a student at Haub Law and understand how this school helped her get to where she is today. She was a strong influence on my decision to choose Haub Law."

Life has come full circle for Tricia with her daughter attending Haub Law. “I think so highly of Pace and was so excited when Michelle decided to attend the same law school that I did, but also that my father was so proud to work at for so many years,” said Tricia.

To all the mother and mother figures who champion our Haub Law students, thank you! We hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

A Family Legacy Continues | Pace Law School Patricia (Tricia) Feighan ‘94 and her daughter, Michelle, a current 2L at Haub Law, have deep family ties to Pace. “My father, Philip B.

Everyday thousands of humans and millions of nonhumans endure solitary confinement. Human prisoners held in this way are confined for 22 to 24 hours a day for weeks, months, or even years on end in cells the size of a parking space. For these humans, the experience is tortuous. Captive animals held in solitary confinement similarly spend much of their lives locked into tiny spaces, isolated, and deprived of the types of interactions and environment essential to their wellbeing. And, like humans, they are driven mad. In human and nonhuman settings, the agony of solitary is chillingly alike and harmful. And, in neither setting is it justifiable or necessary.

In their article, Powerless Beings: Solitary Confinement of Humans and Non Humans in America, published in Nebraska Law Review, Haub Law Professors Michael Mushlin and David Cassuto use a comparative format to examine the moral, penological and scientific shortcomings of solitary confinement across species. The article sheds light on the importance of empowering all creatures subjected to solitary confinement. “If we adequately protect all vulnerable beings, the unnecessary suffering inflicted by solitary confinement will finally end,” they write.

2024 Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law | Professor Bratspies: Mapping Injustice 04/29/2024

Earlier this month, Professor Rebecca Bratspies delivered the Annual Lloyd K. Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University on "Mapping Injustice: Race, Place, and Environment in New York City." Professor Rebecca Bratspies currently serves as a Visiting Professor of Environmental Law and Haub Visiting Scholar at Haub Law. She is also a Professor at CUNY School of Law, where she is the founding director of the Center for Urban Environmental Reform.

Professor Bratspies focused her lecture on Environmental Justice, which she describes as having at least two rough components: “fair treatment, a substantive outcome” and “meaningful involvement,” which can be described as a procedural component. She used these components throughout her lecture to discuss the “highly racialized inequality” that exists today, how we got here, and what we can do about it. Her fascinating presentation chronicled the history of New York, starting with the 1890’s, and the evolution of housing in New York from single-family to tenement style buildings and the progression of events and laws and agencies.

The Lloyd K. Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law was established in memory of Lloyd K. Garrison in 1995.

Providing Shelter: In Memory of Roy Echols and Jackie Robinson | Yonkers Times 04/26/2024

Reflecting on Jackie Robinson Day this past April 15th, Haub Law Professor John R. Nolan recounts the untold story of how Whitney Young Manor in Yonkers was developed to provide shelter to lower income families in an article published both in the Yonkers Times and the Yonkers Ledger.

The development, named in honor of the notable American civil rights leader, was the creative vision and determination of Professor John Nolon and Roy Echols of the Yonkers Community Action Program, with the collaboration and support of Jackie Robinson, then retired from his legendary baseball career. For the past 50 years, the housing development has provided vital shelter to approximately 600 individuals and families in need.
“It was a small chance event that resulted in significant change, providing shelter for so many and teaching that our individual actions can count,” writes Professor Nolon.

We're continuing our celebration at Haub Law by featuring Pace I Haub Environmental Law Professor Jason Czarnezki's latest article "A Brief Legal History of Wisconsin Conservation,” co-authored with 3L Carolyn Drell, recently published in the Marquette Law Review. The article examines the legal history of Wisconsin conservation — how the state’s conservation values were expressed in law, how its natural resources law has evolved and what that has (and has not) embodied, and how Wisconsin helps us define modern concepts of “conservation.”

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Professor Czarnezki recounts his own childhood interest in environmental issues sharing the early visionary work of Gerald Czarnezki (Grandpa Gerry), who was, at the time, considered something of a radical conservationist, as well as the work of his father Joe Czarnezki, who drafted and sponsored significant environmental legislation while serving in the Wisconsin State Senate and Assembly.

The Pace Law Review (PLR) presented its triennial Symposium earlier this month focusing on the theme of Bioethics After Dobbs. The full-day symposium highlighted fundamental questions about the balance between individual autonomy, personhood, the relationship between practitioners and their patients, ethical considerations in research, and more, which were discussed during four panels featuring legal scholars, bioethicists, healthcare experts, and practitioners.

A highlight of the symposium was the Dyson keynote lecture, entitled The Alabama Embryo Decision in Ethics, Law and Politics, delivered by Professor I. Glenn Cohen, the James A. Atwood & Leslie Williams Professor of Law and Deputy Dean of Harvard Law School.

During his lecture, Professor Cohen spoke about several themes emerging from the February 16, 2024 decision of the Alabama Supreme Court in LePage v. Center for Reproductive Medicine, which held that embryos produced for IVF and held in storage qualify as “children” for purposes of Alabama’s Wrongful Death of a Minor Act. For example, he covered issues including the implications of the decision in the context of the fetal personhood movement in America, the relationship between discourse on abortion and discourse on IVF and embryo destruction, and the gap between bioethical and legal discourse on this topic, connecting these themes to bioethical questions surrounding the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Articles based on the lecture and panel presentations will be published by PLR in a symposium edition.

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Convenes Climate Constitutionalism Conference with Karenna Gore as Keynote Speaker | Pace Law School 04/12/2024

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University hosted a Climate Constitutionalism Conference last week, bringing together constitutional law experts, climate change activists, environmental law professors, and noteworthy legal professionals from around the country to examine the crucial role of federal and state constitutions in responding to the climate crisis.

Organized by Pace I Haub Environmental Law Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law Katrina F. Kuh and Delaware Law School Distinguished Professor of Law James R. May, the Climate Constitutionalism conference was inspired by the recently released book, Democracy in a Hotter Time edited by David W. Orr, to which they were both contributing chapter co-authors.

Karenna Gore, founder and executive director of the Center for Earth Ethics and visiting professor of practice of earth ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York, was keynote speaker at the conference.

“We are at a point right now where the intelligence of the human species is in serious question. Are we able to solve this, are we smart enough? And if the answer to that is yes, we have to figure out a way to acknowledge nature,” said Karenna Gore. “We will need to figure out a way to acknowledge that we depend for survival on the air, water, and biosystem for the atmosphere and that has to be in our foundational documents in some way or another. Ethics undergirds our laws and social norms in society and as a field it is most powerful in those times when both laws and social norms are out of step with a deeply felt sense of right and wrong. When the sensibility of ethics is widely shared and deeply felt, that is when laws and social norms can be changed.”
