May 23, 2019

The 26th Annual Denise Carty-Bennia Memorial Bar Awards Reception, sponsored by Sherin and Lodgen, was held on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at Northeastern University School of Law. Students, their families, the Alumni/ae Board, and faculty and staff of the Law School attended the event. Richard Rose, who recently retired as a federal prosecutor, gave the keynote speech.

Professor Denise Carty-Bennia was a highly successful attorney and educator, advisor, mentor, and friend to countless Northeastern law students. She was dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and the expansion of opportunities for people of color. Professor Carty-Bennia’s untimely death in 1990 created a void for many who knew her and her work.
