Cathy Kiernan has been selected to receive NJ Biz’s General Counsel Lifetime Achievement Award and will be honored at the NJ Biz General Counsel of the Year, May 18th at the Palace, Somerset, NJ.
- Cathy has worked at Seton Hall University for 29 years beginning as university counsel and establishing the first in-house legal office, and ultimately advancing to the role of vice president and general counsel. She attended and graduated from NJ academic institutions, including Seton Hall Law School.
- Over her tenure, Cathy has provided counsel to the University on many complex and diverse legal matters, as well as key academic and business initiatives, including most recently the development of a new school of medicine in partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health. The Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine will be the only private medical school in the state and one of only five medical schools in the nation affiliated with a Catholic university, helping to address New Jersey’s growing healthcare needs and projected shortage of primary care physicians.
- Cathy is also a member of the Board of Trustees of The Seeing Eye, Inc., in Morristown, and vice-chair of the Higher Education Committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association.
