He was a Kent Scholar at Columbia Law School and clerked for the Honorable Jed Rakoff (S.D.N.Y.), the Honorable Robert Katzmann (Second Circuit Court of Appeals), and the Honorable Robert Smith (New York State Court of Appeals). Prior to graduating from Columbia, he was a Lecturer at Princeton University and taught philosophy and constitutional law as an adjunct at Fordham University and Rutgers University, and business ethics as an adjunct at Fordham's College of Business Administration. Just prior to coming to Pace, he taught legal research and writing and moot court for three years at Loyola University College of Law in New Orleans, where he also coached several of Loyola's moot court teams and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by the Black Law Students Association.

While employed as a litigation associate at Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler LLP, he worked, among other assignments, on a major product licensing case. In 2008 he was one of several lawyers presented with the N.Y.C. Bar Association’s Thurgood Marshall Award for service as pro bono counsel to a person under sentence of death.

Professor Widulski has written articles on constitutional law, jurisprudence, law and literature, and political philosophy. He has written posts on domestic and international criminal law for Pace’s Criminal Justice blog, and he serves on the editorial board of Lex Naturalis, a journal of natural law jurisprudence. In addition to his teaching and administrative work at Pace, he coaches Pace’s International Criminal Court and Evidence moot court teams.
