Three honored at 25th annual Leadership Awards Dinner held by Pace University Elisabeth Haub School of Law

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (March 9, 2020) -- Pace University Elisabeth Haub School of Law held its 25th annual Leadership Awards Dinner on March 5 at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, N.Y.

Presented with this year’s Distinguished Service Award were Louis V. Fasulo '83, Director of Advocacy Programs at Haub Law and partner at Fasulo, Braverman and DiMaggio LLP; Hon. Terry Jane Ruderman '80, Justice of the New York State Supreme Court, Ninth Judicial District, and Associate Justice, Appellate Term of the Supreme Court, 9th & 10th Judicial Districts; and Jerold Ruderman, Senior Counsel at Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker and long-time managing partner of the firm’s White Plains office.

“At our Leadership Awards Dinner, we were thrilled to honor and celebrate three important members of our community,” said Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson. “Haub Law is deeply grateful for these individuals and their dedication and commitment to the Law School.”

Professor Louis Fasulo has used his superb trial skills on behalf of both clients and the students at Haub Law. His enthusiasm and skill have fostered a love of trial work in countless students and have been the foundation of our highly regarded advocacy program.

Judge Terry Jane Ruderman was one of the Law School’s first alumnae to rise to judicial office, where she has developed a strong reputation for her keen mind and fair judgment.

Additionally, Jerold Ruderman has been a great friend of the Law School, providing counsel and guidance to several deans as a long-time member of our Board of Visitors, serving as a mentor to students and hiring many alumni.

The Law School inaugurated its Leadership Award in 1995.  The Distinguished Service Award is presented at the Dinner and honors individuals and/or organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the legal community.  Through sponsorships and a journal produced for the event, funds are raised that help to underwrite the law school’s academic programs, faculty and students.
