Class of 2016

Caroline Gange
Caroline received her undergraduate degree from Saint Joseph’s College. After graduation she spent nearly three years working at a Long Island firm that handled creditor’s rights. She had opportunities to witness many court proceedings, and the lawyering issues she witnessed sparked her interest in legal ethics. During the summer of 2014 she served as an intern at the Departmental Disciplinary Committee for the First Department. This work provided a window into mistakes attorneys make that can lead to discipline.   At Hofstra Law, Caroline is a Dean’s Honors Scholar, a staff member of the Hofstra Law Review, and a member of the Moot Court Board. In addition, she is a student member of both the New York City Bar Association’s Ethics Committee and the Theodore Roosevelt American Inn of Court. At the Inn of Court, she will participate in a presentation on lawyering issues related to the ethics of diversity.

John Konz
Having been raised in Nebraska and graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder, John’s interest in legal ethics developed as a result of a truly diverse array of life experience, including, among other things, time spent working for a medical non-profit in Mumbai, India, a financial firm in Newport Beach, California, and as a paralegal for three years in Colorado.  John split the summer of 2014 between interning with the Trial Division of the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel at the Colorado Supreme Court and as an ethics intern at Holland & Hart LLP, in downtown Denver, Colorado. Notably, John served on a subcommittee of the Judicial Advisory Council whose object was to explore the implementation of Limited Liability Legal Technicians in order to increase access to legal services in Colorado.  John is a staff member on the Hofstra Law Review, a member of Hofstra Law’s mock trial team, and currently serves on the New York City Bar Association Committee on Professional Ethics.
