A lot has happened from Cardozo Law's founding in 1976 to the first day of classes in 2016. The school kicks-off a year-long celebration to highlight the enormous achievements made by our faculty, alumni and students over 40 years.
Dean Melanie Leslie has announced that Hon. Robert A. Katzmann, Chief Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, will address Cardozo School of Law graduates at the school’s 2016 commencement ceremony on May 31, 2016 at David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center.
Dean Melanie Leslie has announced that Michelle Greenberg-Kobrin will become the Director of the Indie Film Clinic and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Law at Cardozo School of Law. Ms. Greenberg-Kobrin will also serve as Senior Fellow and Director of the Leadership Program at the Heyman Center for Corporate Governance.
The relationship between a chief executive officer and the general counsel of any company is necessarily complex. The CEO’s mission to innovate, drive business, and expand into new products and territories is tempered by constantly evolving legal rights and obligations. That mission is particularly challenging for a business that is both public and global in nature.
Under the agreement, student participants of the clinic will review the evolution of these concepts and their legal implications, and share their results with ICTJ, an international organization that works in countries seeking to address legacies of mass human rights violations.
