The Regis Bar Association is proud to kick off the new Hon. John F. Keenan ’47 Lecture Series with a conversation with Judge Keenan himself. We cordially invite the entire Regis community to attend.Todd Cosenza ’91, a partner at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, will guide the conversation as Judge Keenan discusses his distinguished legal career that has spanned six decades, almost exclusively in the public sector.

After graduating from Regis in 1947 and Manhattan College in 1951, Keenan earned a law degree from Fordham University in 1954. Upon graduating, his legal career was put on hold to join the U.S. Army, where he was assigned to the Army Security Agency and stationed in Tokyo from 1954 to 1956 during the Korean War. Soon after completing his service and after a four-month stint at a law firm — the only time he spent in private practice — Keenan found his way to the District Attorney's office, where he was appointed assistant district attorney in New York County. He later served as chief assistant under District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. While chief assistant, Keenan led the homicide bureau during its prosecutions of some of the most notable murder cases in New York City.

President Ronald Reagan appointed Keenan to the position of United States district judge for the Southern District of New York in 1983, a position he has held for 36 years. On May 19, 2016 at the Daniel Patrick Moynihan U.S. Courthouse at 500 Pearl Street, the 9th Floor Ceremonial Courtroom for the Southern District of New York was renamed the Hon. John F. Keenan Ceremonial Courtroom.

We hope you will join us on September 25 as we launch our new annual lecture series named for this great public servant.
