Celebrating Thirty Years of Mediation
On the evening of October 8, 2015, the Cardozo Mediation Clinic celebrated its 30th Anniversary. The evening was an overwhelming success with over 100 guests including Mediation Clinic alumni, faculty, students and friends of the Kukin Program.
The celebration commenced with an invigorating welcome by Dean Melanie Leslie. Attendees sang a song composed by Ellen Waldman and Hal Abramson, honoring Lela Love. Lela Love, founder and director of the Mediation Clinic, made remarks about how exciting and challenging and rewarding her career as the director of the Clinic has been. The evening continued with an intimate conversation between Special Master Kenneth R. Feinberg and Hon. Daniel H. Weinstein (Ret.) moderated by Professor Lela Love. These master mediators answered many questions, including their best and worst moments as mediators. Accomplished guitarist, master mediator and Cardozo alum Lester Levy (’85) helped close out the evening with a beautiful guitar performance.
