New York Law School received a $100,000 gift for its moot court program, establishing the Honorable Ernst H. Rosenberger Appellate Advocacy Support Fund. Rosenberger is Associate Justice of the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division First Department, and is vice chair of the New York Law School Board of Trustees. Among Justice Rosenberger’s honors and awards, he is the recipient of the William J. Brennan Award (2001) from the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Benjamin N. Cardozo Award (2000) from the Jewish Lawyers' Guild. Justice Rosenberger's long and distinguished career in the law is marked by an avowed concern for the rights of the disenfranchised. His strong commitment to justice led him to volunteer his services in the defense of the so-called “Freedom Riders” arrested in 1961 in Jackson, MS, and he worked on accommodation and voting rights cases throughout the South in the 1960s.

Peter Beyer and classmates from Switzerland and Germany have organized an LL.M. reunion for August 28-August 31 in Berlin, Germany. Although organized by the LL.M. Class of 2001, everyone is welcome. “We are in the process of putting together a little program for the few days in the German capital, such as a guided English tour of the Reichstag (German Parliament), a cruise with a boat on the river, casual dinner, etc. There will be plenty of time for excursions through the city on everybody's own. All in all, the idea of this reunion is, obviously, to see each other after a couple of years. The crowd that we can get together will not be a big one, I guess, but fellow classmates from USA, Japan, Switzerland, Indonesia and elsewhere have already confirmed their participation,” writes Beyer.
