Herbert D. Schwartzman - 2000
Mr. Schwartzman retired from St. John’s University this past Spring, having served as its General Counsel for nearly 30 years. He previously was in private practice for 13 years, specializing in labor relations. He spent a major portion of his time handling negotiations, arbitrations, Labor Board proceedings, damage actions, and injunction actions. It was through that work that he became involved with St. John’s University. For his entire tenure at St. John’s, he was the institution’s sole in-house counsel.
Mr. Schwartzman graduated from New York University in 1953 and received his J. D. from Columbia University School of Law in 1956. He is the author of two articles in The Journal of College and University Law and served on the NACUA Board of Directors from 1977-1979. He has long been recognized by his New York City area colleagues as “one of those people who not only has known the law, but who knows how to explain it.” There is probably not a NACUA member among them who has not had the benefit, directly or otherwise, of Mr. Schwartzman’s assistance and expertise. He is a member of the Labor Arbitration Panel of the American Arbitration Association and a former member of the Committee on Labor Laws and Social Security Legislation of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.
NACUA is pleased to present Mr. Schwartzman with Life Membership in recognition of his many years of dedicated service to St. John’s University, to NACUA and to the profession.
