The David Cohn Appellate Advocacy
Competition, held each year in the spring, is named for David
Cohn, who attended Columbia University and graduated from New Jersey
Law School, predecessor of Rutgers School of Law-Newark, in 1923. He
was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1924.
Active as a trial attorney throughout his career, Mr. Cohn was a
loyal and devoted alumni until his death in 1979. Because he took
such particular delight in teaching, training and helping young
attorneys and law students, the Cohn Family was pleased to endow
this Appellate Advocacy Competition in his honor.
Albert Cohn, his son, served as a member of the Rutgers Law
School adjunct faculty for many years and is principal in the family
firm, Cohn, Lifland, Pearlman, Herrman & Knopf in Saddle Brook,
The winners of the David Cohn Competition will go on to represent
Rutgers School of Law-Newark in the National Appellate Advocacy
