Law Dean Glen Honored by State Bar

Dean Kristin Booth
Dean Kristin Booth Glen of the CUNY School of Law at Queens College was honored by the New York State Bar Association on January 25 with the 2001 Ruth G. Shapiro Memorial Award. The honor has been given since 1992 to a Bar member who has made noteworthy legal contributions on behalf of women.

A veteran federal litigator in the First Amendment area (involved in the Pentagon Papers case, and cases involving Vietnam War protesters Daniel Ellsberg and Benjamin Spock) and former New York Supreme Court and Appellate judge, Glen was cited by the award committee for "demonstrated concern for women and women's issues in her personal life, as well as in her years in private practice, her career on the bench, and now as a leader in academia. She is a humanist, embracing concerns of the disadvantaged, who are often disproportionately women."
