BRONXVILLE N.Y. - Federal Judge Colleen McMahon will speak at Concordia College about the role of the federal courts in the quest for justice on Feb. 26, as part of the school's Business Breakfast Series.
McMahon was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in 1998 by then President Clinton. She started her legal career in private practice at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, and in 1984, she became the first woman litigator elected as a partner of that firm.
“We are thrilled Judge McMahon’s visit to Concordia coincides with the OSilas Gallery’s 'Journey of Justice' art exhibition,” said Concordia President Viji George. "Her own journey in the legal profession has been remarkable. She is recognized as a leader both behind the bench and in private practice, and for her dedication to improving the legal profession.”
McMahon and her husband, Frank Sica, live in Bronxville, and their three children have attended The Bronxville School.
The event will start at 7 a.m. with a small breakfast, followed by the presentation at 7:30 a.m. The event is free, but reservations are suggested.
