November 2017 Meeting
Newark—Legal Capital of the State
Robert Steinbaum, Esq.
Trenton may be New Jersey’s official state capital, but Newark, where many of our members work, is the de facto legal capital of the state. Rob Steinbaum will discuss the history of the Newark legal community – the large firms that started in the city, and the many other smaller firms, government offices, law schools, and non-profit legal organizations which call Newark home.
Mr. Steinbaum has been a prominent member of New Jersey’s legal community since he began his career as an Assistant United States Attorney in Newark after graduating from Yale and Georgetown Law School. He went on to be the publisher of the New Jersey Law Journal for 26 years and now serves as the Associate Dean for Advancement at Rutgers Law School. He has held leadership positions on many boards in Newark and was the recipient of an award for outstanding and dedicated community service by the Legal Services Foundation of Essex County.
