The very progressive past of CUNY law school dean who applauded hate-filled speaker

By Emily Crane
May 30, 2023

The dean of CUNY’s law school, who was among those to applaud the recent “hate-filled” commencement speech delivered by a graduate, spearheaded the creation of a race-related coursework requirement at her last job.

Before being tapped as head of CUNY’s law school last July, Sudha Setty — who has a history of advocating for “social justice lawyering” — spent four years leading Western New England University’s legal faculty in Massachusetts and another 12 years as a faculty member.

In her role there as dean, Setty was behind the establishment of the “Antiracism and Cultural Competency” graduation requirement for the university’s students.

The graduation requirement, which was adopted by the law school in April 2021, included courses that were titled “Race, Racism & the Law” and “Business Law from an Antiracist Perspective.”

After starting out at the Big Apple-based law firm Davis, Polk and Wardwell, where she worked from 1999 to 2006, the majority of Setty’s legal career has been rooted in educating upcoming lawyers.
