LeGaL’s Sixth Annual Judicial Reception


At LeGaL's Sixth Annual Judicial Reception, over 100 members and guests gathered at Skadden to honor our local LGBT judges and judicial officers. The event featured an "Out on the Bench" panel discussion with U.S. District Court Judges for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York J. Paul Oetken and Pamela K. Chen,  Appellate Division, First Department Justice Marcy Kahn, and New York City Civil Court Judge Josh Hanshaft. Moderated by Judge Stephen Robinson, Skadden litigation partner and former federal judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, panelists discussed perspectives, challenges, and opportunities relating to LGBT diversity in the Judiciary. Justices Cynthia Kern and Joanne Winslow also received special recognition for their appointment to the Appellate Division, First and Fourth Departments. The evening finished off with an opportunity to network over drinks and hors d'oeuvres.
