Welcome to the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law New Jersey Alumni Web page!
We serve alumni, parents, and friends of the Law School in and around New Jersey. If you would like to become involved with the New Jersey Alumni Club, please contact committee Co-Chairs Seth Goodman Park and Kenneth L. Baum. The club strives to address issues facing NJ alumni, spotlight individual areas of practice, and strengthen Cardozo’s regional alumni network.
Cardozo’s New Jersey alumni make up the second largest alumni group and represents graduates who either live or work in the northern half of Garden State. Those residing or living in the southern half of the state primarily participate in Cardozo's Mid-Atlantic Alumni Club.
