Should I go into public interest legal work? Talk to two accomplished attorneys on Thursday night.
People go into law for all kinds of reasons. Join two seasoned lawyers from the same firm whose daily work is different, but who share a commitment to the common good.
Kevin Curnin has devoted more than 15 years to the Public Service Project, which he founded at Stroock, Stroock & Lavan – a large law firm known for serving businesses and financial institutions. This is a permanent, firm-wide pro bono infrastructure to coordinate and deliver effective legal services for free to clients in need, tackling issues like access to justice, anti-poverty work, disability rights, schools and education, community economic development, and environmental sustainability. He has won multiple awards for the program and for his dedication to public service: the American Bar Association National Public Service Award, the Urban Justice Center Law and Society Award, and dozens of others. He was recently given a Lifetime Achievement award from Dartmouth College for his commitment to public service. He is the president of the Board of Directors of the Association of Pro Bono Counsel.
Jamie Bernard ’91 also works at Stroock, where he represents corporate clients in complex litigation (class action, audit, and securities matters). He also represents defendants in white collar criminal law matters. He is an adjunct professor at Fordham Law School, and has published and spoken frequently on matters of legal ethics. He is the President of the Federal Bar Foundation.
