Author, attorney and former New York State Supreme Court Justice Richard Rosenbaum will deliver the Pi Sigma Alpha lecture at the Northeastern Political Science Association’s dinner Nov. 19 in Philadelphia. The association’s 41st annual conference aims to enhance and expand the knowledge of politics. More than 800 political scientists from around the world will attend.
“I am honored to be invited by the NPSA to present this lecture before highly regarded political scientists from as far away as Korea,” says Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum, senior counsel at Nixon Peabody LLP, is the author of No Room for Democracy: The Triumph of Ego Over Common Sense (RIT Press). A central figure in Republican politics in New York and nationally for decades, Rosenbaum was the Republican state chairman under Governor Nelson Rockefeller. He also served as an advisor and confidante to several U.S. presidents. In the book, he offers firsthand accounts to behind-the-scenes events. Among those that Rosenbaum both witnessed and affected:
In addition to talking about his political career, Rosenbaum will offer insight about the present-day political landscape. Some of Rosenbaum’s advice to conference attendees: “As political scientists, you are in a unique position to change the ways politics is conducted. It is your responsibility to teach students the importance of civility which is sadly lacking in political discourse today.”
