Chair of the Legal Studies Division attends the Law Day event

On March 6, Seny Taveras, Chairperson of the Legal Studies Division, attended the Law Day event at John Jay College. The attendees had the opportunity to hear from respected professionals about the best law practices.

Ms. Taveras, who is a founding member of the Pre-Law Institute that organized the event says: “What an honor to participate in Law Day at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I want to thank the President of John Jay and Pre-Law Institute director for inviting me. As a founding member of the Pre-Law Institute, it was great to see how the new administration continues with the original vision to prepare students to go to law school and beyond.”

Ms. Taveras has improved our department of Legal Studies with her unique experience and background at other institutions. We are so proud to have her leading one of our Divisions.
