NYCOA Judge Abdus-Salaam: Patterns from Dissenting Opinions (presentation)

By Sarah H. Baker
Sarah Baker graduated from Albany Law School this past spring. She did her undergraduate work at SUNY Geneseo, graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. During law school, Sarah was an Executive Editor for Notes and Comments for Volume 79 of the Albany Law Review. She served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Mae A. D’Agostino in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York. She also had the opportunity to intern for the Claims Bureau of the New York Attorney General’s Office, the Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office, as well as serving as a research assistant at Albany Law.
This presentation was prepared for Professor Bonventre’s Court of Appeals Intensive Seminar. It reflects Sarah's research on Judge Abdus-Salaam, focusing on her ten most recently authored dissenting opinions (at the time) to discern any patterns.
