Barrett Lectures in Mineola and Rochester

On April 30, Professor John Q. Barrett delivered the Jewish Lawyers’ Association inaugural Steven J. Eisman Memorial Lecture at the Nassau County Bar Association in Mineola, New York. Professor Barrett spoke on “Nazis, Nuremberg, and the Rule of Law: Some Enduring Lessons for Lawyers Today.” Mr. Eisman, who was Nassau County Bar president at the time of his death in late 2015, was a St. John’s Law graduate and an accomplished lawyer on Long Island.

On May 2, Professor Barrett participated in a “Law Week” continuing legal education program, with U.S. District Court Chief Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr. (W.D.N.Y.) and U.S. Magistrate Judge Marian W. Payson (W.D.N.Y.), at the Monroe County Bar Association in Rochester, New York. In the program, “From the WDNY to the Supreme Court: The History and Constitutional Importance of Three Cases,” Professor Barrett discussed United States v. Di Re (1948) and Warth v. Seldin (1975).
