The Howard Lichtenstein Distinguished Professorship in Legal Ethics Lectures bring outstanding scholars in the field of legal ethics together with the Hofstra Law community.

The Howard Lichtenstein Distinguished Professorship was established in 1989 to remember Howard Lichtenstein, an outstanding lawyer with a genuine interest in legal education and the training and development of young lawyers. During his 44 years of practice, his primary concentration was in the field of labor law. As a senior partner at the law firm Proskauer Rose Goetz & Mendelsohn (now known as Proskauer Rose LLP), he was considered an authority on administrative law. In addition, Mr. Lichtenstein was a strong advocate for improving the teaching of legal ethics.

Each entry below includes a complete video recording of the lecture and, when possible, the full text of the published paper related to the presentation.
