October 29, 2015

PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – October 26, 2015 – In celebration of the Department of Criminal Justice’s 10th anniversary, the Office of Alumni Engagement and the Department of Criminal Justice at St. Joseph’s College (SJC) are co-hosting a law-focused panel event for students and alumni on Tuesday, November 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the McGann Conference Center at SJC Long Island. 

“Many people in the United States receive their impressions of the criminal justice system through the media and prime-time television,” said Lisa Galasso, assistant director of alumni engagement at SJC. “Our panel of alumni will give people a better understanding of how the criminal justice system actually works, what is being portrayed accurately, and what is not.”

“Law & Order SJC: Perceptions and Reality of the Criminal Justice System” will feature a panel of SJC alumni, including Jackie Iadanza ’08, staff court reporter at Enright Court Reporting, Inc.; Amanda Burke ’01, Nassau County assistant district attorney; and Ken Roche ’03 of the Suffolk County Police Department. The panel will be moderated by Christopher Carroll ’88, partner at Carroll, McNulty and Kull, LLC and member of the board of trustees for SJC.
