During the week of Nov. 13, the Nassau County Supreme Court Commercial Division will hold its proceedings at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, marking the first time sitting Justices from the Nassau County Supreme Court will preside over complex commercial legal matters outside the Supreme Court courthouse.

The sitting is a collaborative effort between the Honorable Thomas A. Adams, Administrative Judge of Nassau County, and the Honorable A. Gail Prudenti, Dean of the Maurice A. Deane School of Law.

Presiding over their respective cases will be Hofstra Law alumnus Justice Stephen A. Bucaria ’76, Justice Vito M. DeStefano, and Hofstra University alumnus Justice Timothy S. Driscoll ’88.

“I want to thank Judge Adams as well as Judges Bucaria, DeStefano and Driscoll for organizing this wonderful educational experience for our students,” says Judge Prudenti. “Observing the Justices, watching trials and hearing arguments on motions is not something every law student has the opportunity to witness, so we are grateful for the Justices’ visit.”

The Justices will be sitting in the Law School’s newly redesigned Weitz & Luxenberg Trial Courtroom (pictured above), which has been updated with the latest advancements in courtroom technology. Hofstra Law students will have the opportunity to watch the proceedings in the courtroom and via livestream in the Law School.
