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 spoke with Cardozo's incoming class of 2019 at orientation on Thursday, August 18, 2016. The students, who are part of the school's 40th class, learned about Cardozo's history of ambition, innovation, leadership and activism. "It's our 40th year, so I want to talk about the things that have made the law school great," said Dean Leslie. "The four values that characterize us and explain why we're different than other law schools."
The Public Service Stipend raises money for students so that they can pursue otherwise uncompensated internships in the public sector. It is supported in part by the Annual Public Service Auction. In this video, some of the recipients of the stipend talk about their experiences.
