Distinguished Guest Lecturer Adriana Mark L’03, Deputy Circuit Librarian for the Second Circuit, Hosts NYCEx Students
Distinguished Guest Lecturer Adriana Mark L’03, Deputy Circuit Librarian for the Second Circuit, hosted NYCEx students as they learned about the historic Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse, and attended oral arguments presided over by Judge Rosemary Pooler, Circuit Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Pooler, whose home chambers are in Syracuse, welcomed the students on the record, ending with “Go ‘Cuse!”
After arguments, Mark gave the students a tour of the courthouse followed by a lecture on legal research issues and Mark’s path to becoming a law librarian. The lecture took place in the Second Circuit’s new Learning Center which was created to improve and inspire civics education for the citizens of the Second Circuit. The students finished their day with a private tour of the beautiful Second Circuit library learning more about the historic collection and possible summer experiences with the circuit’s law library team.
