Cancelled--Strengthening Justice in Our Justice System: Challenges in Progressive Prosecution A Talk by Eric Gonzalez

We regret to inform you that this event has been cancelled, as classes are cancelled this week. We will update this listing if the event is rescheduled.

The Monroe H. Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics presents “Strengthening Justice in Our Justice System:  Challenges in Progressive Prosecution” A Talk by Eric Gonzalez, Brooklyn District Attorney. Eric Gonzalez made history in November 2017 when he became the first Latino District Attorney elected in New York State.  DA Gonzalez began his legal career in the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office upon his graduation from University of Michigan Law School in 1995 where he was president of the Latino Law Students Association.  He spent several years as a junior and then senior assistant in various bureaus within the office, including the Sex Crimes and Special Victims Bureau.  During his career Gonzalez tried a full range of cases, including homicides.  He successfully guided the launch of several key initiatives, including the ground-breaking initiative known as Justice 2020, to help him carry out his vision of keeping Brooklyn safe and strengthening trust in our justice system by ensuring fairness and equal justice for all.

The Monroe H. Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics, founded in honor of one of the profession’s most influential legal scholars, seeks to focus the attention of law students, scholars, judges and practitioners on today’s most significant issues for the legal profession.

The Freedman Institute sponsors programs and conferences for scholarly inquiry and brings together practitioners, judges and scholars to examine critical aspects of the delivery of legal services.

It also trains law students to take responsibility for serving others, and it provides practical experiences to do so.

Monroe Freedman schooled generations of law students and implored colleagues to “make a difference.” The Freedman Institute seeks to enhance his legacy.
