Saint Rose President Carolyn J. Stefanco and others cutting ribbon at mock trial courtroom dedication event

On November 8, we were thrilled to hold a ribbon-cutting for the Honorable Loretta A. Preska ’70 Mock Trial Courtroom. The courtroom provides a place for members of the College’s mock trial team, which also bears Preska’s name, to host competitions and hone their craft. Located in Albertus Hall, the space was made possible by generous donors, including Preska and her husband, Thomas J. Kavaler, Esq., who both attended the dedication ceremony.

“It is an asset that is practically unheard of at the collegiate level,” said Al Chapleau, associate professor of criminal justice and pre-law advisor. “It is a space that is really the envy of any of the teams we compete against.”
