Lewin Honored by NY Bar Association
For decades, Professor Travis H.D. Lewin's name has been synonymous with the College of Law's trial advocacy program. He has dedicated his life to teaching young professionals the art of advocacy, as well as the lessons of professionalism and character. This year, Professor Lewin was recognized at the NTC-TYLA Regional Trial Tournament in Buffalo, where he was honored by the Trial Lawyers Section of the New York State Bar Association with a plaque that set forth his past service to the competition. The Trial Lawyers section announced that they were creating a new award of $1,000 that will be presented annually to the coach of the winning New York law school and which will be named the Travis H. D. Lewin award.

Predators, Porn and the Law: America's Children in the Internet Era April 9 at College of Law
From chat rooms to sexting, how do we keep our children safe from online predators? The Syracuse Law Review and Syracuse College of Law community will present a groundbreaking conference, "Predators, Porn and the Law: America's Children in the Internet Era," at the College of Law on Saturday, April 9, which will bring together legal scholars, children's advocates and law enforcement personnel from across the United States for discussions regarding the safety of America's children in the Internet age. The free conference begins at 9 a.m. and parking is available in the Irving Garage.
"This conference will be a unique opportunity for academics, legal professionals and local community members to come together for a critical examination and timely discussion about the safety of our children in the Internet era," says Jennifer M. Haralambides, third-year law student and editor in chief of the Syracuse Law Review.
Marc Klaas, founder of the KlaasKids Foundation for Children and national advocate for child safety, will be the keynote speaker at 3 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel. Klaas started his foundation after the 1993 kidnap, rape and murder of his 12-year-old daughter.
In addition to Klaas' keynote, the daylong conference will feature presentations by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children; the U.S. Attorney's Office; the Federal Public Defender's Office; and leading scholars, including Ilya Shapiro from the CATO Institute, Professor Amy Adler from New York University and Professor Mary G. Leary from The Catholic University of America.
