First Taste of Justice
Today was also our first guest lecture. Mr. Nelson Roth, who is currently the deputy university counsel and a professor of law had the honor of being the first. His presentation went really well. He told us the story of when he was once called upon by a judge to be a special district attorney for Tompkins county here in New York. His work included five trials in which state troopers were tried and convicted of falsifying finger print evidence.
Julia, Justine are all going to do our reading and then meet for dinner. There is an ice breakers event on our floor tonight that we would like to attend and then we will be meeting and discussing the reading material.
p.s. I was able to find this picture of our guest speaker on the Cornell Website.
