Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall served as the backdrop on a hot day in May for Cardozo’s 40th Commencement Exercises, held May 29. Sixty-six students received LLM degrees, and 275 received JD degrees.
Gow W. Mosby, Jr. ’18 has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the Mark Whitlock Scholarship.
The Whitlock Scholarship was established by the friends and family of Mark Whitlock '10, who passed away from brain cancer when he was a student at Cardozo. Mark’s family sought to celebrate his life and honor his spirit with this scholarship. It is designed to recognize an outstanding, third-year J.D. student who, through the force of individual effort, energy, spirit and initiative, contributes to and/or expands and strengthens student life and community at Cardozo.
Gow was born and raised in Bellport, New York. He attended the University at Albany where he majored in political science, with a minor in Africana studies. After graduating, Gow went on to work at the New York State Assembly in Albany and then a law firm in Manhattan.
Gow was also a Vice President for an international fraternal organization, where he traveled to and helped establish a chapter in Ghana, West Africa, and established a scholarship for minority seniors at Bellport High School in Brookhaven, New York.
Gow started at Cardozo in May 2015 and during his time at the law school he has been involved in a variety of organizations. He was active in the Student Bar Association as a Senator and the Vice President, participated in the Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal as a Staff Editor and the current Editor in Chief, and is a member of the Academic Success Committee for the Dean's Council for Diversity & Inclusion. During Commencement on May 29, Cardozo’s faculty will present Gow with the Steven Eric Tanenbaum Leadership Award for his contributions to student life at Cardozo.
Post-Commencement, Gow will start working at the New York County (Manhattan) District Attorney's Office as an Assistant District Attorney.
