Celebrating over 80 years of excellence in legal education, St.
John’s School of Law has produced lawyers who have distinguished
themselves in practice, government, and the judiciary. Among our
graduates are former New York governors Mario M. Cuomo and Hugh L.
Carey, former Court of Appeals Judges Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick and
Theodore T. Jones, and the School’s former Dean and former Court of
Appeals Judge Joseph W. Bellacosa. The law school plays a prominent
role in the New York City legal community, imbuing all that it does
with the University’s Vincentian tradition.
