Hofstra Law Celebrates Distinguished Alumni on the Bench

On Monday, March 19, Hofstra Law honored eight alumni judges for their exemplary service and celebrated its more than 140 alumni members of the judiciary at its first Distinguished Alumni on the Bench reception. Proceeds from the event, which was held at the Hofstra University Club, support a new Judicial Alumni Scholarship fund to benefit current and future Hofstra Law students.

“Our honorees are truly exemplary. They have blazed trails as judges on the local, state and federal levels, and serve as leaders and role models in their local communities and in the legal profession,” said Judge Gail Prudenti, dean of Hofstra Law. “We are proud to honor such a diverse and accomplished group of jurists.”

The eight honorees were nominated by their peers, and the event was organized with Hofstra Law’s Alumni Judges of Distinction Executive Committee.
