New York State Bar Event

Earlier today, I participated in a three hour celebration of Judith Kaye's legacy at the State Bar's annual meeting. The event was timed to coincide with the publication of a special issue of the Government, Law and Policy Journal, edited by Jonathan Lippman, also devoted to Kaye's legacy. I moderated a panel on problem-solving justice that also featured John Feinblatt, Judy Harris Kluger, Alex Calabrese and Juanita Bing Newton. At the end of the event, Kaye gave a rousing address, exhorting Lippman -- and the rest of us in the room -- to build on the foundation she had helped to establish over the past fifteen years.
