LETTER FROM OUR DEAN Dear Alumni, As the third woman dean of Seton Hall Law School, I feel a particular responsibility not only to be an outstanding dean for all but also to be a strong role model for our women students and alums.
The past year has been one of national introspection about how we attract, treat, and retain women and diverse attorneys in the bar and in the C-Suite. This issue of our Seton Hall Law alumni magazine celebrates the women who have helped create opportunities for others. I couldn’t be prouder of all of them or the many others we couldn’t acknowledge but of whom we are fiercely proud. All of us recognize that there is so much more to accomplish, but we are determined to achieve equity and inclusion for the next generation.
I am thankful to the many alumni who have been creative and generous with their time in facilitating our outreach to women and diverse graduates of Seton Hall Law.
I am thankful to the many alumni who have been creative and generous with their time in facilitating our outreach to women and diverse graduates of Seton Hall Law. Wendy Lario has brought tremendous energy to our newly established women’s leadership alumni group. Assistant Dean Deborah Edwards and I have been in touch with many alumni interested in participating in our recently established DASH organization (Diverse Attorneys of Seton Hall). And it was quite moving to join the founders of LAMBDA in celebrating the anniversary of that organization at the Law School last year. These efforts have taught me two things: first, it takes a team working together to accomplish our goals, and, second, we are blessed with innumerable alumni willing to help re-engage others. I thank you. We have much more to accomplish, and I urge you, when you finish reading this magazine, to do one thing today to reconnect with Seton Hall Law – whether it be to follow us on Twitter, connect with us on LinkedIn, or register for one of the many fabulous events happening at the Law School this semester. Warm regards,
Kathleen M. Boozang Dean and Professor of Law

Women SETON HALL LAW
Miriam T. Rooney Legal Education Pioneer By: D. Michael Risinger, Professor of Law Emeritus

eton Hall Lawâ€™s founding dean, Miriam Theresa Rooney, was the first female dean of an ABA-accredited, AALS-approved law school. To achieve that distinction, she had to start her own law school.
Seton Hall owes its creation to the New Jersey Supreme Court, which required any applicant for the New Jersey Bar after 1950 to have a degree from an ABA-accredited law school. This signed the death warrant for the unaccredited John Marshall Law School of Jersey City, which failed to get ABA accreditation; it ultimately transferred its assets, consisting primarily of its law library, to Seton Hall after its last graduation ceremony in June 1950. At that point, however, there were no clear plans for the actual establishment of a law school.
Seton Hall Law Magazine
Enter Miriam T. Rooney. On July 22, 1950, she met with the president of Seton Hall, Msgr. John L. McNulty. No one knows how their contact was initiated, but it seems very likely, given her personality, that she had heard about the John Marshall gift, and in todayâ€™s parlance, she cold-called him. Whatever the circumstances of that first meeting, Rooney emerged from it with authorization to attempt to organize and put into operation a law school that would obtain accreditation in the shortest possible time, with a target opening date of early February 1951, just over six months away. Over those six months Rooney was truly a whirlwind, creating a curriculum, drafting a catalog, hiring faculty, and recruiting
Over those six months Rooney was truly a whirlwind, creating a curriculum, drafting a catalog, hiring faculty, and finding students. In the end, she accomplished all this and more. students. In the end, she accomplished all this and more. Seton Hall University School of Law held the first meeting of the faculty on January 28, 1951 (Dean Miriam T. Rooney presiding), and held its first classes on February 2. In all these efforts, she worked closely with Arthur T. Vanderbilt, Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court. He was a towering figure in American law, and was instrumental in obtaining the provisional approval of that Court for the new Law School; later, Vanderbilt’s personal support was influential in obtaining ABA accreditation. Miriam T. Rooney was an American Catholic original. She often proudly proclaimed that she was born on the Fourth of July on Bunker Hill in Charlestown, Massachusetts (which she was), but was more reticent about the exact year of her birth (it was 1897). She grew up neither in poverty nor in wealth. She was, of course, quite bright, and gained admission to the six-year program of the prestigious Boston Girls’ Latin School, graduating in 1914. But her parents lacked either the resources or the commitment to women’s higher education to support her intellectual ambitions. After a year at the publicly-supported Boston Normal Arts School, she worked for a variety of business firms in mostly clerical jobs, but she pursued part-time educational opportunities whenever she could. She even enrolled in Portia Law School, Boston’s law school for women, for a time in 1920 and also took a correspondence course in law. She later found the ideal arrangement for her part-time pursuit of serious education, going to work as a cataloguer for the Boston Public Library in 1924 and taking courses at the Harvard Extension School beginning in 1926. While it did not grant a bachelor’s degree in Rooney’s day, Extension School credits could be easily transferred to other institutions for advanced standing. By 1928, Rooney had amassed three-quarters of the credits normally required for a B.A. During this busy time of intellectual ferment, she never strayed far from her Catholic roots, and the one American Catholic thinker that most impressed her was the Rt. Rev. Dr. Edward C. Pace of Catholic University, considered the leading Americanborn Catholic philosopher of the day. Desiring to study with Msgr. Pace, she quit the Boston Public Library in 1928 and moved to Washington D.C., where she took a job with the State Department library. Based on her Harvard Extension School credits, Rooney negotiated advanced standing at Catholic University (well, Sisters College, actually, which was Catholic’s version of Radcliffe, since women were not then formally admitted to Catholic University as undergraduates.)
She completed her B.A. in 1930, her M.A. in 1932, and her Ph.D. in 1937, all while working full time at the State Department library. And she did become a protégé of Msgr. Pace, who supervised her Ph.D. dissertation, Law, Lawlessness and Sanction. It was an Aquinian natural-law critique of the legal philosophies of Bentham, Maine, and Holmes and well received by Catholic legal philosophers; it earned her the Apostolic Blessing of Pope Pius XII in 1947. Having written a significant work of jurisprudence, Rooney thought it only appropriate to get a proper law degree, and she entered George Washington Law School in 1938, graduating in 1942. Despite her philosophical investments, she couldn’t attend Catholic because it had no part-time program, or Georgetown, which did not admit women. Rooney was not to be deterred. In 1944 she moved from the State Department library to the Commercial Policy Division, and then to Legal Advisor’s office, immersing herself in international law. In 1948 she left the State Department to join the faculty at Catholic University School of Law as an Associate Professor and Head Law Librarian. This was another first, because she became the first woman to hold regular professorial rank at that law school, or indeed at any Catholic law school, and only the fifth woman to hold such rank in any fully-approved law school. Dissatisfied with, among other things, what she saw as the limited role of Catholic jurisprudence in the program of legal instruction at Catholic U., Rooney developed a notion of what an ideal “truly Catholic Harvard” would look like. It was this vision that she sold to Msgr. McNulty. As Dean of newly-founded Seton Hall Law, Rooney employed Fall 2018 | law.shu.edu
her considerable talents over the next decade to advance her vision of a Catholic law school. Whether she brought that vision fully to fruition, and whether it was even possible to do so under the constraints of starting a new law school at a University with limited resources, what she did accomplish was truly remarkable. She convinced the ABA to grant full accreditation in 1955, and gained its admission to the Association of American Law Schools in 1959. She did this partly on the basis of promises, agreed to by the University, to shore up certain weaknesses by committing more resources. When the time came, the University couldn’t, or wouldn’t, follow through. Rooney was replaced as Dean by John Loftus on July 1, 1961. The first the faculty heard of it was through a press release in the newspapers. There is an enduring mystery surrounding this event. One view is that Rooney thought she had accomplished all she could. Another view is that she was replaced when she complained about mandated budget cuts and the failure to fulfill promises to the accrediting bodies. Whichever is true, she had nearly twenty more years of productive life ahead of her. First she became a “research professor” at Seton Hall, devoting her time to her increasing interest in issues of women in the law and in world peace through law. She combined these passions with her role as the U.N. observer for the National Association of Women Lawyers, and by taking a leadership role in the ABA’s World Peace through Law Center. She made two trips as a visitor to law faculties in Saigon while the Vietnam War was raging, both as a Fulbright Fellow. In 1967, between her two stints in Vietnam, she retired from Seton Hall, at which time she was awarded the McQuaid Medal, Seton Hall’s highest honor. When she returned from her second visit to Vietnam in the fall of 1968, she became the

U.N. observer for the World Peace through Law Center and its representative on the U.N. Economic and Social Council. For her work on world peace through law, she received the Pax Orbis ex Jure award at the Belgrade Congress on World Peace through Law in 1971. In 1972 she became a member of the Observer Mission of the Vatican at the U.N, handling law of the sea, and other international law issues. She held this post until a few months before her death. Because of the importance of her services to the Vatican, she was awarded the Medal Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice in 1976, the highest Papal decoration awarded to members of the laity. Dean Rooney died in a nursing home in Maplewood on March 23, 1981 after a relatively brief final illness; she is buried at St. Rose of Lima, with the headstone reading “Founding Dean Seton Hall Law School.” Although Miram T. Rooney was tiny in stature, she was a giant in many other ways and generations of alums owe her a debt of gratitude.
The “Other Rooney” In a striking coincidence, the student who attained the highest average in Seton Hall Law’s first class (and the highest average of any student during Miriam Rooney’s tenure as Dean) was also a woman named Rooney — Marian Rooney of Jersey City. Not related to Miriam, Marian was born in 1926 and graduated from the College of New Rochelle in 1946, after which she worked as a secretary. But she had always wanted to be a lawyer, and when Seton Hall Law opened, she jumped at the opportunity. “I grew up with law, I liked law all my life 4
Seton Hall Law Magazine
and I very much wanted to study it. I used to discuss legal problems with my father – sometimes his cases and sometimes cases we would read about in the newspaper.” Marian was the only student awarded Latin honors (cum laude) in the first graduating class. And Seton Hall shaped her life in another way — she fell in love with fellow student John Sheehy, and they were married shortly after both passed the bar. Sheehy & Sheehy opened for business in Jersey City, at the site of the defunct John Marshall Law School. Since that was also where Seton Hall Law had opened before moving to Newark six months later, the two began their law partnership together in the same building where they met. Marian and John successfully practiced both law and marriage together in Jersey City for 32 years until her untimely death at the age of 58 in 1984.
Trailblazing SETON HALL LAW
Women Margaret Brinig ’73
went to law school knowing her end goal was to teach; so it is no surprise that she is the first woman graduate of Seton Hall Law to become a law school professor. It did not take her long – she clerked and worked as an Assistant Deputy Public Defender for two years before commencing her academic career. Now at Notre Dame Law School, Brinig is the Fritz Duda Family Chair in Law specializing in family law and economics. In addition to her scholarship, Brinig loves spending time with her five children and seven grandchildren, “I most enjoy the relationships with students and colleagues at the three schools I’ve taught at,” says Brinig. “It’s wonderful to be in class and get students excited about an idea and help them get started on their journey.” Of her time at Seton Hall Law, she recalls late nights and early mornings on the Law Review, and courses with Professors Robert Diab and Ahmed Bulbulia. Looking back, Brinig originally wanted to help the disadvantaged, and she is gratified that her life’s work has had “a direct impact on disadvantaged families.”
Judge Katharine S. Hayden ’75
was anxious to make her mark when she entered law school; and this fall she will have made her mark on the bench for 21 years. She is a federal judge for the United States District Court, District of New Jersey whose previous experience includes serving as partner at two firms, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and Law Clerk for the Honorable Robert Clifford on the New Jersey Supreme Court. “I still feel molded by my practice years and what I learned at Seton Hall Law,” says Judge Hayden. “The Law School was breaking into the big time, there was an interesting arc, and it was a wonderful time for women to prosper in the field.” The real lesson, Judge Hayden says, is that her career was a mix of hard work, timing, and the firm desire to help people. “This wasn’t happenstance,” she says. “I had a limited three-second moment of ‘I can’t do this,’ and then I never fell into feelings of despair again.” Fall 2018 | law.shu.edu
Paulette Brown ’76
didn’t enter college wanting to be a lawyer; in fact she thought she would end up in a career as a social worker. But throughout her college career at Howard University, she realized just how much more she could do with a law degree. Seton Hall Law was the place to earn it and after 42 years of practicing law, she hasn't looked back. Brown is Senior Partner at Locke Lord LLP and was recently named its Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. In August 2015, she became the first woman of color elected President of the American Bar Association. What she most enjoys today is interacting with young lawyers. She encourages them to “step out and be brave, to try something new. You have talent and won’t get certain places without those capabilities.” While Brown says that being part of the legal profession has been a rewarding experience, she recognizes, “There are still significant strides to be made.” “Statistics show women have not made as much progress as we should,” Brown says. “There needs to be constant education and contribution to pay it forward.”
Seton Hall Law Magazine
Lynn Fontaine Newsome ’81 always had the
mindset to attend Seton Hall Law. As an undergrad at Seton Hall interested in government, political science, and history, she knew her path would eventually lead to law school. She does not consider herself a trailblazer, however, as “there were many women ahead of our class. We came out in numbers and were soon a force to be reckoned with.”
Newsome, partner at Newsome O’Donnell LLC and past president of the New Jersey Bar Association, is currently Chair of Seton Hall Law’s Board of Visitors. “The law has been good to me; I want to be good to it. My Law School has been good to me; I want to be good to it.” Decades later, Newsome is proud of her Law School and the network that it’s celebrated for. Her son, Brian is a 2018 graduate, and she encourages him and all alumni to “value those around you and the relationships you’ve built.”

choose Seton Hall Law, Seton Hall Law chose me.” She is a proud Legal Education Opportunity (LEO) graduate, which she says “opened the door to law school; but it was ultimately my own talent and hard work that sustained me throughout. I tell students that regardless of the route they take, once they are in school, everyone is on the same footing and it is up to them to chart the course of their legal education.”
Despite her firsts, Walker wants, “to ensure I’m not the last and that anyone can strive for excellence.” She was very involved during her time at Seton Hall Law in numerous activities and remains connected years later. One continuing concern is how big of a pay gap there still is between men and women in the working world regardless of industry. “We shouldn’t allow history and what has transpired to oppress segments of society. I want to keep the wheels of justice moving forward.”

One Student AT A TIME S
eton Hall Law welcomed over 250 students this Fall for the incoming classes of 2021 and 2022. Like the generations before them, they experienced mingled trepidation and excitement at Orientation and in the “immersion” first full day of Introduction to Lawyering.
The newest class builds on last year’s upward trend in enrollments and constitutes the largest incoming class this decade. Seton Hall Law is proud to report not only a significant increase in applications, up 18% from the prior year, but an even more remarkable increase in class size of over 30%. Impressively, the bigger class came with increased LSAT and GPA medians of 158 and 3.49.
As we pursue our goal of becoming a Top 50 law school, we remain deeply invested in educating and serving ‘one student at a time’.
Following the success of last year’s inaugural Weekend Program, 2018 showed the continued attractiveness of this initiative to provide innovative access to law school for working professionals. Over 50 new students join their 2L weekend colleagues to pursue their degrees at the Law School on alternating weekends coupled with online learning between the live classes. “We share with our students a commitment to excellence in academics, preparing them to succeed in the practice of law or whatever other career path they choose when they leave us,” said Dean Kathleen M. Boozang. “As we pursue our goal of becoming a Top 50 law school, we remain deeply invested in educating and serving ‘one student at a a time.’” Consistent with that commitment, Seton Hall Law added a fourth section to the 1L class in order to ensure the personal attention that is the Law School’s hallmark.

Two Alums Named United States Attorneys Craig Carpenito ’00
was formally appointed U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey on April 27, 2018 after serving in that position since January. As U.S. Attorney, he oversees all federal criminal prosecutions as well as the litigation of all civil matters in the state. He previously was partner at Alston & Bird LLP, served as Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of New Jersey, and was Senior Counsel in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement, New York Regional Office. “My legal education at Seton Hall Law provided me with a strong foundation to serve as United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey,” Carpenito says. “I am honored to work alongside so many other fine attorneys in this Office to pursue justice for the people of New Jersey and this country.”
Jay E. Town ’98 was sworn in as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama on August 11, 2017.
In that role, he Chairs the Attorney General’s Service Members and Veterans Rights Subcommittee and serves as a member of the Law Enforcement Relations and Coordination; Management, Performance and Personnel Subcommittees. He is the only U.S. Attorney on the Attorney General’s Violent Crime Reduction Coordinating Committee. Mr. Town served in the Marine Corps for 12 years having been honorably discharged in 2008, and attaining the rank of Major. Prior service included work as outside counsel, an adjunct professor, and work on charitable boards. “Any successes I have had the good fortune to achieve in my legal career are due in large part to the positive influences that the faculty, the deans, the student body, and the alumni had on me during my time at Seton Hall Law and thereafter,” says Town. “I am most proud of the relationships that I maintain, to this day, and which remind me of the wise choice I made in attending Seton Hall Law.”
