Seeking Purpose: Supreme Court Justice Sharon M.J. Gianelli

Tuesday April 12, students came together to have lunch and meet Supreme Court Justice Sharon M.J. Gianelli, who was elected to a fourteen-year term on the New York State Supreme Court in November 2014. As an alumnus of Syracuse University’s School of Social Work and Brooklyn Law School, Justice Gianelli has planted her roots within the justice system, specifically with the Adolescent Diversion Program for Nassau County. This was especially near to her heart because this was one of only nine pilot projects in the state that combined social work and the law when handling adolescent misdemeanor and felony cases.
