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.
