Judge Gail Prudenti, dean and executive director of Hofstra Law’s Center for Children, Families and the Law and a former chief administrative judge of the New York courts, together with three other retired Court of Appeals judges, will facilitate a roundtable talk titled “Dissents, Concurrences and Collegiality” at an appellate seminar focused on the Court of Appeals and the four appellate departments.
The roundtable talk will be the closing session of the seminar, which will be held July 8-10 in Suffolk County and will be attended by nearly 60 judges. Judge Prudenti’s co-facilitators will be retired Court of Appeals Judges Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick, Susan Read and Albert Rosenblatt.
This will be the first seminar for appellate judges in more than 10 years. It was reinstated by Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, who will participate in the seminar, as will all six of the Court of Appeals associate judges.
