Jared Rosenblatt will join the law school faculty as associate director of the Trial Advocacy Program and associate professor of law, starting in June.
Currently senior assistant district attorney in the Homicide Trials Bureau of the Queens District Attorney’s Office in New York City, Rosenblatt previously served in the Queens D.A.’s Special Victims Bureau and Trial Division. Since 2004, Rosenblatt has taken more than 50 criminal trials to verdict.
Since 2007, he has also served as faculty advisor to the Trial Advocacy Association at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, which has accrued a very successful record at regional and national mock trial contests including the Texas Young Lawyers Association Mock Trial Competition.
Rosenblatt’s experience trying murders, stranger rape, sexual assaults of children and adults and cold cases and coaching budding trial advocates make him a tremendous addition to the faculty, Trial Advocacy Program Director Gwen Roseman Stern said.
“We are thrilled that Jared will be joining the faculty,” Stern said. “He brings sterling experience in both the classroom and the courtroom that is going to strengthen our Trial Team and our entire Trial Advocacy Program.”
Rosenblatt said looks forward to starting at the law school, which is in the process of developing the Thomas R. Kline Institute for Trial Advocacy in Center City.
“I’m excited to be part of a school that’s got the backing of one of the most prestigious trial lawyers in the entire country,” Rosenblatt said, referring to Kline, the law school’s naming donor.
Rosenblatt said he is also delighted by the prospect of working with the school’s Trial Team, noting a successful track record that includes this year’s championship in the American Association for Justice’s National Student Trial Advocacy Competition.
