Law alumnus, Christopher Christie, will be the keynote speaker at the
2007 Fall Integrity and Professionalism Convocation hosted by the
Stillman School of Business on October 23 at 11 a.m.
As the United States Attorney, Christie is responsible for the
prosecution of federal criminal statutes for all of New Jersey, ranging
from acts of terrorism, white collar crime, organized crime and gang
activities, internet-related crimes, drug importation through New
Jersey ports and many other criminal acts. He recently announced the
charges against former Mayor of Newark, Sharpe James and earlier this
year arrested the six men in the plot to attack Fort Dix. He has also
played a large role in the recent arrests of 11 New Jersey officials
charged with taking bribes.
Christie has been named by the Corporate Crime Reporter as one of the
top ten corporate and white collar crime prosecutors in the nation.
Christie was appointed to the position in December 2001 by President
Bush, and unanimously confirmed by the US Senate later that month. His
staff includes 135 attorneys with offices in Newark, Trenton and
Camden. Christie earned his Juris Doctor in 1987 from the Seton Hall
University School of Law.
At this convocation, Chris Christie will share his experiences and
thoughts surrounding the topic of Integrity and Professionalism. Past
speakers include Corey Booker and Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. For more
