Professor Catania arrived at Seton Hall Law in 1980 after careers as both an educator, as a social studies teacher at Weston High School, and a litigator, as an associate with the firm now called Winston Strawn. As a law professor, she regularly taught Civil Procedure and New York Practice but also taught Remedies, Evidence, Business Associations, Tort Reform and Medical Malpractice at Seton Hall Law and was a visiting faculty member at Brooklyn Law School. She published in the areas of federal jurisdiction and employment discrimination. During her tenure at Seton Hall, she was a strong voice for women in the law and in legal education and her dedication to the law school was unparalleled. For this, she was awarded Seton Hall Law’s highest honor: the Miriam T. Rooney Medal. Professor Catania died in 2000.
