DeCotiis Ribbon Cutting 672x267

Dedication Ceremony and Ribbon Cutting for Seton Hall Law DeCotiis Law Moot Courtroom

Seton Hall Law held a Dedication Ceremony and Ribbon Cutting for the reimagined moot court space on January 18th.

Now the DeCotiis Law Moot Courtroom, the Law School boasts a dramatic space reflecting state-of-the-art upgrades for current and future generations of advocates while symbolizing the centrality of the rule of law and transparency of the law to our country. In her remarks, Dean Boozang noted the proximity of the DeCotiis Law Moot Courtroom and Chapel: together they represent Seton Hall Law’s core mission – producing lawyers who integrate faith and justice.

Seton Hall Law is deeply grateful for the generosity of the DeCotiis Law Firm and family, represented at the ribbon cutting by Joseph ’94 and M. Robert ’69. Also pictured are the event speakers, Dean Boozang, Third Circuit Judge Michael Chagares ’87, and Dr. Karen Boroff, Interim Provost.

“The new courtroom is more than just a beautiful place,” Judge Chagares said. “It is where our graduates will learn, be tested, and develop their skills in advocacy. It is where the future of our bar will get its start. Here, generations to come will become prepared to do the important work of attorneys – helping others, making communities better places, and advancing the cause of justice. The regal courtroom befits the importance of what will occur here.”

Sincere thanks to the DeCotiis family and all of Seton Hall Law’s donors for their selfless acts of kindness.
