Convicted Felon & Disbarred Attorney to teach ethics at Hofstra

Wednesday, September 26, 2007


Rick Moran at American Thinker reports that Hofstra Law School has invited convicted felon and disbarred attorney Lynne Stewart to speak about legal ethics on October 16.

The law school's press release makes no mention of Stewart's felony conviction for conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists. She was sentenced to 28 months in prison.

Stewart's website shows no remorse for her criminal acts.

Felony conviction brings automatic disbarment for New York attorneys.

The New York State Bar Association and the American Bar Association should weigh in on this matter and provide strong advice for Hofstra that it's not an acceptable practice for felons to be teaching ethics.

Couldn't they have gone for Melvyn Weiss? At least he won a number of cases.

She has a sort of Rodham look to her - did she ever work for Rose?
