CUNY Law will have a major presence at the 2010 Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) Conference on “Vulnerable Populations and Economic Realities: an Interdisciplinary Approach to Law Teaching.”
Golden Gate University School of Law and SALT will co-sponsor the two-day teaching conference, which will examine the latest theories and data collected by social scientists on poverty so that this new information can be effectively incorporated into legal education across the curriculum.

While in Atlanta for the conference, Rooney will also meet with members of the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism at the State Bar and will speak to students at Georgia State University’s School of Law on the Fundamentals of Law Practice. Rooney was recently awarded the Father Robert Drinan Award from the AALS’s Section on Pro Bono and Public Service Opportunities and the 2010 Louis M.
