A LETTER FROM THE DEAN Dear Cardozo Family: The 2012-2013 Annual Report of Giving is a celebration of your generous and spirited support of Cardozo. I am deeply grateful to each of you, our law school alumni and friends, whose names are listed on the pages in this book. Thank you for saying ‘yes’ to Cardozo. Your generosity allows us to maintain our tradition of innovation. Your support is integral to our success as an impact player in legal education. Every gift matters. Quite simply, you make it possible for Cardozo to continue to educate the kind and quality of lawyers that society needs: smart, thoughtful, creative, problem solvers, armed with knowledge of legal theory and practice-ready skills, committed to the public good and determined to make a difference. I am even more appreciative of your gifts now. Why? Because over this past year, Cardozo, like all law schools, has asked tough questions about how to continue to best educate and prepare future lawyers. Today, all law schools face challenges related to the economy, to the legal system, to globalization and to changes in the legal profession and in legal education itself. Our law school thrives on challenges. Cardozo was built on a challenge 37 years ago when we opened our doors. Economic uncertainty was on the increase but we forged

ahead with imagination, a forward-looking, never complacent attitude and always a pursuit of excellence. We see challenges as opportunities. We have always relied on you and your support to help us optimize our strengths and to develop new programs that prepare our students for practice at the highest levels of the profession, equipped with skills essential to the craft of lawyering as well as a deep understanding of the central importance of the ideals of justice and service. I rely on you, our alumni and friends, to continue to be the generous, ambitious and engaged community that you are; to pull together when you are most needed, to say ‘yes’ to Cardozo. Your dedication and support make an essential difference in the lives of our students and in the life of the law school. On behalf of our students, our faculty, our administration and of every member of our Cardozo community, thank you.

With warm regards,

Matthew Diller Dean and Professor of Law


Alumni and Friends Raise $6,100,000 for the Law School What is the impact of your philanthropy? In fiscal year 2013, you—our alumni and friends—raised $6.1 million for Cardozo. You made a direct impact on the life of the law school: on the academic, clinical and skills programs we offer our students and on the overall array of resources available for our students and our alumni. Each year, because of how you choose to designate your gifts, you shape and guide the resources available to the law school.

CLINICAL EDUCATION • 44% • Tiferet Unterman (’14) and Sarah

Efronson (’13) were invited to attend a training workshop for government officials on corporate responsibility and genocide and developed an innovative curriculum on genocide prevention. Human Rights and Genocide Clinic

• The Guardianship Clinic organized a

national conference that resulted in a major report, “Guardianship in New York: Developing an Agenda for Change,” which outlines a comprehensive series of reforms for New York’s guardianship system.

• The Immigration Justice Clinic was

instrumental in launching the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project which offers competent legal representation for many of New York’s immigrant detainees who might otherwise face unnecessary deportations.

STUDENT RESOURCES • 19% • “ My fellowship at the Queens Supreme Court

helped me to develop my legal skills and kept me active as a lawyer. The experience made me very competitive during interviews for my current position in the Bronx DA’s office.” Elizabeth Schwartzmann ’12 DEAN’S FELLOW

• “ My fellowship at Lawyers for Children was vital to the start of my career because it allowed me to delve into an area of family law—utilizing mediation in high-conflict custody cases to avoid exposing our clients, the children, to the anxiety of trial—which has become a key aspect of my daily practice.” Tara Sheoran ’12 MAINZER FELLOW

• “ The three years I spent at Cardozo were some

of the most fundamental years of my life… I would not have had the access to such amazing experiences if it was not for the support off the entire Cardozo Community and the Annual Fund. Rachel Jacobs ’13

it was incredibly exciting. On my third day at work, I worked on a prisoners’ civil rights violation lawsuit, a death penalty sentencing case, [and] criminal record expungements…” Andrew daMota ’14

In his Dean’s Speakers Series Fall 2013 presentation, Jon Henes talked about the experiences that helped him become one of the nation’s top business restructuring attorneys. “Cardozo transformed me and my life,” he told current students. Jon’s connection to Cardozo is as personal as it is professional—he met his wife, Pam, at orientation before their first day of classes in 1993. “I liked her from the start,” he says, “she was very serious, fun and driven. She taught me there was a correlation between hard, focused work and success. Any success I have is due to Pam’s love and support.” Jon graduated from Cardozo to build a legal career focused on advising companies in financial distress and has led some of the largest and most high profile corporate restructurings in the country. Pam practiced Trust and Estates law at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, LLC. And Jon and Pam have remained actively engaged with Cardozo. In 1996, with the help of Professor Stephen Schulte, who was on the board of Cardozo at the time, they launched the alumni group that evolved into the school’s Alumni Association with the goal of supporting Cardozo’s growth and providing support for students who “want to do great things in the world.” Pam was also an active and early leader of the alumnae group, Cardozo Women. Jon believes that as Cardozo’s reputation increases every alum benefits, and he is enthusiastic about Cardozo’s commitment to providing students with programs and opportunities that give them a practical and realistic experience of lawyering. He is chair of the Advisory Committee of The Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Center on Corporate Governance, teaches a class annually on corporate governance, and he and Pam give generously to the Dean’s Discretionary Fund. “Pam and I have great confidence in Dean Diller,” he says. “He has demonstrated exceptional leadership, and he knows best what the school needs. We know that our gifts will be wisely placed to help accomplish Cardozo’s goals.” Jon has been especially impressed with the Cardozo alumni who now work at Kirkland and Ellis LLP. “Cardozo students graduate ready to show the world what they can do,” he says. “They have learned to work hard, do the right thing, and give back.” Family obligations—Pam and Jon have four children, ages 2-11 and one on the way due in December—a demanding job and teaching responsibilities don’t keep the Heneses from giving back in a variety of ways. Jon serves on the board of the Michael Lynch Foundation, which provides scholarships for children of the victims of 9/11 and other natural disasters and is the co-chair of the New York advisory board of Common Sense Media, the country’s largest, most influential advocacy group around issues of children’s access to digital technologies. Pam serves on the board of the American Friends of the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra. “It’s important to support the causes and places that are meaningful to you,” he says. “I hope Cardozo alumni will continue to help the school grow ever more successful. If we can accomplish this, we’ll be doing something important, valuable and worthwhile.” 9

Carrie ’88 and Harold K. Gordon ’88 Gift to the Dean’s Discretionary Fund

“Dean Diller has a vision for the law school that is both aspirational and oriented to the real world, and we know that Cardozo will flourish under his leadership,” says Harold Gordon. Cardozo has had a profound impact on their lives, he continues. Harold and Carrie, who define themselves as soul-mates and best friends, met at Cardozo, a place that instilled in them a strong work ethic, inspired a great sense of intellectual curiosity and connected them to peers who are now among many long-standing friends and colleagues. “It was exciting to be there in the beginning when the school was first making its mark,” says Harold, “And Cardozo helped me build a rewarding legal career.” Harold’s connection with Cardozo continues through his service as a member of the Dean’s Advisory Council, the Advisory Committee of the The Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Center on Corporate Governance and as a member of the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association, as well as through his firm’s ongoing relationship with Cardozo. Cardozo students have been “standouts” in Jones Day’s summer associate program, he reports, and represent a true success story, demonstrating strong skills and an impeccable work ethic, which has led to the firm’s participation for many years in Cardozo’s on-campus recruitment program. Jones Day now has a number of Cardozo graduates who are partners, including in offices outside New York. Harold’s and Carrie’s gift of $100,000 to the law school is but their most recent gesture of leadership. “We must continue to penetrate the legal marketplace in New York City and other regions of the country. There is no reason we should not have 100% alumni participation to support our school’s growth and success,” Gordon says. “We need dollars for competitive faculty salaries, scholarships and the school’s physical plant, among other needs.” Carrie and Harold are impressed with the school’s capital improvements in recent years and want to see Cardozo continue to enhance its facilities. “Cardozo has a great location. We need to take full advantage of our address and create a state-of-the-art environment in which to teach and learn. There’s no reason we shouldn’t dream big, whether that dream includes a new law school building at some point, or even another Cardozo dorm.” He realizes that as a young school Cardozo has a smaller alumni base than many other New York City law schools, yet he is encouraged by the “can do” spirit and optimism of Cardozo alumni and proud of the way in which the school has rapidly developed an excellent local and national reputation. “With a smaller alumni base, your gift can and will have an even greater impact than it might elsewhere.” The Gordons have been active in many causes and organizations, including the United Jewish Appeal (UJA), where Harold has been active in UJA’s Lawyers Division, their local school district, and their local synagogue and Hadassah chapter on Long Island, in both of which Carrie has held leadership positions. Their gifts to Cardozo reflect trust in Dean Diller and unwavering belief in Cardozo’s capacity to shape the legal community regionally, nationally and on a global scale. 12

The Cohen Family Scholarship was created in early 2000 almost 20 years after Gail and Eric met as 1L’s at Cardozo. While in school both benefited from the education and friendships made as part of the fifth graduating class of 1983. At an event in Stamford, Connecticut, the Cohens reunited with Dean David Rudenstine, a former professor of theirs, and were impressed and inspired by the accomplishments of the school and the direction it was taking. Reflecting on Cardozo’s impact on their lives and careers they became active on multiple levels including the establishment of the Cohen Family Scholarship. This scholarship was created to help give academically talented students the ability to have the same experience they had and to help alleviate some of the financial burdens of law school. The Cohens believe that it is important to provide aid to students who want and deserve the opportunity of a law education at Cardozo but cannot afford it in New York. Gail and Eric generously made an additional gift this year to their scholarship. In addition to their financial support, Eric joined the Board of Overseers and works hard to help the school continue to grow, improve and build its brand in the legal market. Preparing students for their careers and assisting with job placement are of particular concern, which means enhancing alumni involvement and creating strong networks. Eric is heartened by his interactions with Dean Matthew Diller and the other members of the Board and believes that together they have made great strides towards these goals. Learning the importance of a commitment to underserved members of the community while in law school inspired the Cohens’ involvement in a variety of causes. Eric is a board member of Pro Bono Partnership, an organization that offers free legal services to non-profit organizations. Gail is currently on the advisory committee and has served for many years as a board member and president of A Better Chance of Westport, an organization that provides academically gifted and highly motivated young men of color living in economically disadvantaged communities the opportunity to attend public school in Westport, Connecticut. Gail is also a member of Child Advocates of Connecticut and serves as a monitor in the Stamford Court for children that have been identified as neglected or abused. Gail and Eric are proud to be the parents of a Cardozo graduate (class of 2012) who now successfully practices law in New York City and Eric works with a number of exceptional Cardozo graduates in his capacity as General Counsel at Terex Corporation in Westport Connecticut. The Cohens are committed to Cardozo and are convinced that Cardozo will continue to thrive with the continued support of alumni. “We must continue to keep the school relevant and accessible. That takes alumni participation,” says Eric. “I am confident that we can accomplish this.”

Alumni Association Survives Sandy and Raises $200,000 for Student Scholarships

By almost any measure, the sixth annual dinner of the Cardozo Alumni Association surpassed each of the five preceding it—in size, in spirit and in generous goodwill. Although originally scheduled for November 7 last year, the dinner was put on hold with the rest of New York as we contended with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. But by January, the Cardozo community had regrouped, was back on its feet and prepared to celebrate. Hundreds of alumni packed the Mandarin Oriental Hotel to honor Cardozo’s best. This years dinner recognized Alumni of the Year: Jonathan S. Henes ’96, Partner, Kirkland & Ellis LLP and Randi Weingarten ’83, President, American Federation of Teachers. In fact, the crowd was so dense that the event has now outgrown the Mandarin Oriental—and the 2014 dinner will move to a larger venue in The Pierre. The annual dinner has become an outpouring of gratitude for the accomplishments, careers, friendships, marriages and families that had their beginnings in a law school experience now shared by over 11,000 individuals. This growing community increasingly expresses its gratitude by supporting the scholarships that made law school a possibility for so many of them. The theme was sounded repeatedly throughout the evening—by the honorees, by the alums in attendance and by scholarship recipients from very different eras: Both Jerry Goldfeder ’79 and Jil Simon ’13 attested to the crucial role of scholarship assistance in their law school careers. In 2013, of course, scholarship aid has become something close to a necessity—fully 85% of the members of Jil’s graduating class received some form of financial assistance during their time in law school. The need to grow scholarship resources was an emphatic message and an effective one. Two hundred thousand dollars was raised for scholarships; alumni reinforced their connections with one another and with the law school; and the next generation of Cardozo lawyers received a robust assist from fellow members of the law school family.

Gift to support the Law School’s Tech Startup Clinic and the Israeli Supreme Court Project

Ann Goldstein P’10

“We’re going to open up a wide spectrum of brilliant decisions from some of the greatest judges in the world,” says Shalom Maidenbaum of Cardozo’s Israeli Supreme Court Project (ISCP). ISCP is one of two new initiatives, “natural matches for Cardozo,” that Shalom and his, wife, Iris, are supporting with a generous gift. The ISCP translates the Court’s opinions from Hebrew to English for the benefit of the world’s democracies. The Maidenbaums first learned of the Project when their son Nathan ’14 traveled to Israel with law school classmates and faculty to participate in a mediation program. Shalom was reminded of a project on Israeli’s “right of return” laws that had compelled him as a Cardozo student. “Israel is leader in human rights and legal issues, but very few of the country’s legal documents are translated into English or accessible to the worldwide community. Cardozo will be making a significant contribution to legal scholarship through this project.” Iris and Shalom’s gift will also support Cardozo’s new Tech Startup Clinic, a project that is as “natural a fit” for the Maidenbaum family as it is for Cardozo. Shalom’s father, for whom Nathan is named, was an immigrant from “humble beginnings” who became a successful entrepreneur, inspiring his children and grandchildren to develop business skills acumen and skills: Shalom completed a business degree prior to law school; both Iris and Nathan earned MBA degrees from NYU; daughter Dara (a Yeshiva University/Stern College for Women graduate) works for an accounting firm; daughter Lena studies economics at NYU; and son Bennie is minoring in business at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel. “The Tech Startup Clinic is a way of giving an opportunity to young minds to leap frog into the world of business and combine legal and business knowledge and careers. This is another way for Cardozo to stay ahead of the curve,” says Shalom. The clinic will provide legal services to new technology-based companies in New York City. Philanthropy is as important as the law and business to the Maidenbaum family. Shalom and Iris support numerous organizations and causes in Israel, including a large foster care facility, scholarships for the children of Ethiopian immigrants and a children’s hospital that serves both Israeli and Arab children. Closer to home, they are actively involved in Kulanu, a local school which strives to integrate children with developmental disabilities into classrooms with their typically developing peers. Iris and Shalom hope they can inspire other donors. “Every Cardozo alum should be contributing to the school,” Shalom says. “Cardozo helped us create good careers and it’s our obligation and a great privilege to give back.”

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” Leon Wildes had successfully argued the incredibly complex, groundbreaking Lennon-Ono immigration case (1975) when he began to teach at Cardozo in the school’s second year. (Thanks to his efforts, John and Yoko gained legal status and remained legally in New York City.) As for Leon, he dreamed of helping to develop a law school committed to doing good and pursuing justice and hoped to create a family devoted to the causes to which he was devoting his life and career. He succeeded in realizing both dreams. Leon started teaching at Cardozo before there was even a casebook in the immigration field and launched Cardozo’s Immigration Clinic at a time when clinical offerings were rare, and he continued to teach Immigration Law at Cardozo for 33 years with annual subsequent presentations in classes offered by his son. Michael, when just a high school student, worked alongside his father at Cardozo helping to prepare classes; he met his wife, Amy, in his father’s classroom before graduating from Cardozo in 1989. Like his father, Michael has dedicated himself to immigration issues, expanding the firm with Leon with offices in New York, New Jersey and Florida. He developed a course in business immigration law for Cardozo, which he teaches every year, a field in which there is still no casebook, and he continues to help the school evolve its curriculum in the field. “Our family has been involved with Cardozo since the beginning, and I will do whatever I can to support the school,” says Michael. “Cardozo graduates have gone on to work in some of the country’s most important immigration firms and government organizations. And Cardozo alumni continue to step up and do the right thing for the school.” He is especially grateful for support that has enabled the range and continued diversity of offerings in the field of immigration law. Michael says he remembers when the building’s elevators took longer to rise than climbing the stairs. But the school’s rapid ascendance to success has been equally significant: “The dean and the amazing faculty have continued to perfect the school and alumni have always come through.” Leon and Michael believe that students with the intellectual capacity to meet the school’s high standards and the dedication to Cardozo’s values, but without the financial means, must be assisted by alumni who have the capacity to support them. Their firm participates in the newly launched Resident Associate Mentoring Program (RAMP) with 15 other law firms in New York City that have agreed to hire Cardozo graduates for apprenticeships for one year after their graduation from Cardozo. Mentoring students is of special importance to Michael, who started his career as a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s Office (1989-1993) in Brooklyn: “I mentor Cardozo students every morning,” says Michael. “Cardozo cares about the quality of each student’s whole law school experience and mentoring is an integral part of this effort. I am very proud of our capable students and grateful to be part of family and an institution that have influenced judges, prosecutors, jurors, colleagues, students and the lives of people who need our help and unique expertise and support.”

Telford Taylor, chief counsel for the prosecution at the Nuremberg Trials, was a member of Cardozo’s founding faculty. He was instrumental in designing the school’s human rights program. Benjamin Ferencz, born in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Europe, is a Harvard educated attorney who served as a Nuremberg prosecutor. Jocelyn Getgen Kestenbaum, former Women and Justice Fellow at Cornell Law School, is the recipient of the first Telford Taylor International Human Rights Clinical Teaching Fellowship at Cardozo. What they have in common is Mr. Ferencz’s generosity and our school’s profound dedication to human rights and the eradication of genocide. Mr. Ferencz has established the $100,000 Telford Taylor Fellowship to honor his mentor and a world-leading advocate for human rights, and to promote the careers of young attorneys whose work is devoted to replacing the “law of force with the force of law.” He chose Cardozo as the home for the fellowship because of the school’s proven dedication to upholding international human rights and eliminating genocide. “Nuremberg taught me that creating a world of tolerance and compassion would be a long and arduous task,” says Mr. Ferencz, “and I also learned that if we do not devote ourselves to developing effective world law, the same cruel mentality that made the Holocaust possible may continue and could destroy us.” Mr. Ferencz is clear about the importance of education in eradicating human rights abuses and genocide: “A good education led to an exciting legal career,” he says. His participation in the “biggest murder trial in history,” would not have been possible without proper training and preparation. “I have always felt a deep yearning for universal friendship and world peace,” he says. The missing link is legal world order. Through the Telford Taylor International Human Rights Clinical Teaching Fellowship he hopes to extend the legacy of his work in Nuremberg and Professor Telford Taylor’s and Cardozo’s contributions to these deeply held convictions.

Law Firm Challenge Hits New Milestone In 2013, the Law Firm Challenge continued the steady, consistent growth it has demonstrated over its nine-year history with a record 51 firms participating, a full 10% increase over last year. For a second year in a row, Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP Partner Gary Holtzer ’90 led the expanding effort which is a key component of annual giving. “The campaign name is a great hook,” he notes, “because few lawyers can resist a challenge—especially one that means so much in the life of the law school.” Celebrating their successful effort, Law Firm Challenge agents and participants gathered at the Harmonie Club in November. Gary reminded us that “Cardozo gave us all a terrific foundation, “the confidence to make the most of our careers and a network of relationships that we still rely on.” The agents for the challenge succeed by understanding that we can stay connected—to each other and to Cardozo—by coming together and ‘competing’ at the same time. They’ve done a wonderful job.” David Herman ’00, also a partner at Weil, will head the 2014 campaign. “Gary has set a high bar for next year,” but in the spirit of the effort and to help Cardozo,” he says, “I would love to raise it further.” The winners of the 2013 Law Firm Challenge are:

Class Agents Cardozo alumni describe the school as unique—a law school that challenged them intellectually as well as one that fostered a lasting sense of community. Our class agent program, now in its fourth year, gives alumni a way to continue to stay engaged with the law school and an opportunity to deepen the alumni network by encouraging greater communication between alumni and Cardozo and reconnecting classmates to the ever-expanding Cardozo community.

Today and Tomorrow at Cardozo Gifts to support scholarships for current and future students and the Dean’s Discretionary Fund Parents have traditionally played an important role in the advancement of the law school and this year proved no exception. Three sets of families, who have chosen to be anonymous, made generous $100,000 gifts to Cardozo demonstrating confidence in the school’s leadership, programs, and students. A named scholarship of $100,000 for current students is an expression of one family’s enthusiastic commitment to Cardozo and provides substantial support for students who have demonstrated promise but who lack the resources to attend law school without financial assistance or without incurring excessive debt. Another scholarship will be divided between current scholarships and an endowment to support future Cardozo students, thereby expanding opportunities to those who dream of pursuing a legal education at Cardozo. Scholarship support is a priority of the Dean Diller’s and these gifts are integral to assisting talented students and to deepening the intellectual diversity of the law school. The gift for the Dean’s Discretionary Fund will support areas of critical need, as identified by Dean Diller, which may include scholarships, program development (new curricular offerings, clinics, experiential learning opportunities, public interest summer stipends, bridge to practice fellowships, to name a few) and enhancements to Cardozo’s physical plant, among other uses. Cardozo alumni have expressed their appreciation for Dean Diller’s vision for the school, exemplary leadership, and commitment to providing students with a balanced practice ready/ theoretically sound education that will help them excel and succeed as the legal world continues to evolve. “We are educating lawyers with a deep sense of justice who value public service and are knowledgeable and insightful about key areas of the law and are imaginative problem solvers. They will have the judgment and creativity to meet the needs of their clients, employers, and colleagues,” says Dean Diller. “Alumni and friends have been incredibly generous and continue to support the school’s unique contribution to the global legal community.” Cardozo is deeply grateful to Cardozo parents for their generosity. Their participation, much of it organized by the law school’s Parents Council, enhances the vitality of the law school and makes so much possible for our students.

“I am very optimistic about Cardozo’s future. The school’s reputation has risen dramatically in a short time, and this reflects the high caliber of Cardozo’s professors, educational programs, students and alumni. I am especially grateful for the opportunities I had at Cardozo to work directly with clients in the Bet Tzedek clinic, to study comparative justice
