Cardozo welcomed its newest admitted students through a "Virtual Admitted Students Day" via Zoom video conference.
"We are re-conceptualizing Admitted Students Day," said Dean of Admissions David Martinidez. At its peak, the virtual event included more than 170 participants.
Dean Melanie Leslie ’91 introduced a panel of Cardozo faculty members, including Professors Michael Pollack, Michelle Greenberg-Kobrin, Michael Herz and Felix Wu, who gave students an overview of what to expect at Cardozo, from their first-year courses to the type of hands-on experience they would receive in Cardozo's clinics.
Dean Leslie noted that the unique expertise of faculty members make Cardozo "an incredibly special place to study law."
Pollack expanded on what makes Cardozo unique, by explaining “The Cardozo Method” of teaching first-year students.
Professors also took questions from students as they typed in the Zoom chat window. Herz and Greenberg-Kobrin answered questions about applying to Cardozo’s in-house clinics. Herz also discussed what makes studying law in New York City so exciting.
After the faculty panel, Professor and Director, Intellectual Property & Information Law Program Chris Buccafusco led an online class for admitted students on one of the most ubiquitous cases in the torts canon, Murphy v. Steeplechase Amusement Co., Inc. Buccafusco engaged with students while they used the “raised hand” feature on the video call.
