Professor Frank Gulino’s essay on William Howard Taft as Chief Justice has been published in The Bencher, the flagship publication of the American Inns of Court. The essay was selected for inclusion in a series of articles on “Lawyers Who Shaped America” and appears in the January/February 2012 issue of The Bencher. It focuses on Taft’s role in transforming the Supreme Court from a forum that primarily corrected errors in ordinary private litigation to a constitutional tribunal that resolved public policy issues of national importance.
Since 2007, Professor Gulino has been a Master of the Bench in the Theodore Roosevelt American Inn of Court in Mineola. During the same period, he also has been Hofstra Law’s faculty liaison to the Inn and a member of the Inn’s Executive Committee. Professor Gulino is also a member of the Inn’s Mentoring Program Implementation Committee. The committee oversees the Inn’s mentoring program, in which professional members of the Inn serve as mentors to student members from local schools, including Hofstra.
