Five members of the Columbus School of Law’s part-time adjunct faculty, officially called lecturers or distinguished lecturers, were honored at a June 25 reception that paid tribute to their many years of service in CUA Law classrooms.
Professors Stephen Goldman, Carlos Ortiz-Miranda, Theodore Sky, James P. Timony, and Raymond Wyrsch have concluded their teaching careers with the Law School, having touched the lives of thousands of students stretching back for decades.
“Our part-time adjuncts bring an added dimension of experience to our classrooms, and we are very grateful for their expertise and service,” said Daniel F. Attridge, Dean and Knights of Columbus Professor of Law.
Some of the departing lecturers have taught part-time at CUA Law since the 1980s. Their contributions were acknowledged by the dean and in remarks by Dr. James Brennan, provost of The Catholic University of America.
Each of the honorees was then introduced and warmly praised by a fulltime faculty colleague, who shared both amusing anecdotes and profound appreciation for the significant role he played in the life of the Law School.
Professor Cliff Fishman’s words about his friend Steve Goldman, for example, easily apply to every one of part-time lecturers who gave so much to their students.
“There is nothing part-time about Steve’s contributions. He taught every course brilliantly,” Fishman said.
