& Judith S. Kaye Arbitration Lecture

May 1, 2017  |  5:00pm |  150 E. 42nd ST, 17 FL

In January 2016, the New York legal community lost a visionary leader: the Hon. Judith S. Kaye. In addition to her twenty-five years of service on the New York Court of Appeals, Judge Kaye was the Founding Chair of NYIAC, to which she brought her characteristic dedication and verve. In her honor, the NYIAC Board of Directors established the Judith S. Kaye Arbitration Lecture, to be given annually in conjunction with the Grand Central Forum.
