Pace Law Remembers Former Professor Norman Lichtenstein

February 5, 2018 Pace Law Statement

Pace Law mourns the loss of former professor Norman Lichtenstein. Professor Lichtenstein was an active member of our faculty for more than 25 years and in that time, was beloved and respected by our entire community. As Dean Emeritus Richard Ottinger said of Norman, who served as Associated Dean during his tenure, “he was one of the pillars on which our law school was built, famed for his dedication to education and social justice… it was with his wise guidance…that the Law School thrived with one of its strongest points being as an exceptionally student-oriented school.”

Professor Lichtenstein’s career was long and accomplished.  His commitment to public service and the law was inspiring to all of us at Pace Law and to many others.  Prior to his work at the law school, he served as executive director of Westchester Legal Services and was a member and past president of the White Plains Board of Education. He was also counsel to the New York State Joint Legislative Committee on Consumer Protection and was a member of the Citizens Union Committee on State Legislation. Professor Lichtenstein was also a scholar, with numerous published articles on the Eleventh Amendment, the “right to know” for children in schools, and fault as a factor in distribution of property after divorce. 

Professor Lichtenstein contributed immeasurably to Pace Law, our students and the study of the law. We are grateful for his extraordinary work and legacy. Our thoughts are with his family.
