Hofstra law dean Demleitner '89 offers keynote to law gathering
Nora V. Demleitner ’89, dean of the School of Law at Hofstra University, was honored at a March gathering of the Nassau (N.Y.) County judiciary.
In her keynote, Demleitner noted that while “female attorneys, female judges [and] female prosecutors have truly become a staple in our courtrooms and in the boardrooms… we still see women underrepresented at the highest echelons of the legal profession. The legal profession is now more unequal than engineering and nonprofessional jobs for women. Curious isn’t it for a profession charged with protecting fairness and equality?”
The event at the Nassau County Supreme Court was co-sponsored by the Nassau County Judicial Committee on Women in the Courts and the Nassau County Bar Association Lawyer Assistance Program Committee. Demleitner was honored for her commitment to justice, education and equality.
