Judge Jeanine Pirro was not able to attend and speak at Founder’s Day due to a death in her family. St. Barnabas welcomed George Will, columnist for The Washington Post and good friend of Judge Pirro to speak in her place.

George Will is an American political commentator and writes regular columns for The Washington Post and provides commentary for NBC News and MSNBC. In 1986, The Wall Street Journal called him “perhaps the most powerful journalist in America,” in a league with Walter Lippmann. His numerous awards include the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1977.

“The Conservative Sensibility,” his latest book, will be released in June 2019. His other works include:
“One Man’s America: The Pleasures and Provocations of Our Singular Nation” (2008), “Restoration: Congress, Term Limits and the Recovery of Deliberative Democracy” (1992), “Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball” (1989), “The New Season: A Spectator’s Guide to the 1988 Election” (1987) and “Statecraft as Soulcraft” (1983). Will grew up in Champaign, IL, attended Trinity College and Oxford University, and received a PhD from Princeton University.

Jeanine Pirro currently hosts “Justice with Judge Jeanine” and also serves as a legal analyst on the FOX News Channel.

Judge Pirro’s notable legal career spans over 30 years. In 1975, she became an assistant district attorney for Westchester County, New York and was the first female to prosecute murder cases there. In 1990, Pirro was elected as the first woman to serve as a Westchester County Court judge.

In addition, Pirro started the first domestic violence unit in a prosecutor’s office in the country. In 1997, she was appointed by then-Governor George Pataki to chair the New York State Commission on Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board, whose research helped pass increased protection for domestic violence victims. The Republican Party chose her as its candidate for New York State Attorney General in 2006.

Pirro earned a B.A from the University of Buffalo, magna cum laude, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) law degree from Albany Law School, where she was a member of the Law Review.

We hope you can join us for this special event!
