United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey and Seton Hall 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 information contact Leigh Onimus, Stillman School of Business at (973) 313-6058.
