Division, Second Department, announced yesterday. It will mark the
first time the court has conducted official business at a law
"I cannot tell you how proud I am to have the Appellate Division,
Second Department, hold court at my alma mater," Eng said in a
statement. Eng is a 1972 graduate who has served as a director of
St. John's Law's alumni association, an adjunct professor at the
school, and a judge for several moot court competitions. He said he
would like the court to hold oral arguments in the future at other
law schools within the Second Judicial District. "It is a real
privilege for St. John's to be the first law school in the Second
Department to host a session of the appellate court on campus,"
Dean Michael Simons said in the press release.
