Alumni Highlight

The Honorable Francesca E. ConnollyThe Honorable Francesca E. Connolly ('82) is currently an Associate Justice of the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court, Second Judicial Department. A question that Justice Connolly is often asked is how she became a judge in the first place. Justice Connolly attributes her success to a combination of factors including: a strong work ethic, commitment to public service, and the education she received at Pace.

After graduating from SUNY Albany in 1979, in just three years, Justice Connolly immediately enrolled in law school. "It was never really a question in my mind. I wanted to gain a legal education, have a career in litigation, and, hopefully, eventually, become a judge." While at Pace, Justice Connolly was very involved, especially in moot court competitions. "Some of my fondest memories at Pace involve the moot court competitions, from winning the Advanced Moot Court Competition to receiving the award for best oral argument." Not one to limit herself to one challenge at a time, Justice Connolly also actively represented the law school as its American Bar Association Representative at regional and national conferences. During law school, Justice Connolly worked as a law intern with the New York City Department of Probation, Office of the General Counsel.
