Pace Law Student Zaheer Tajani wrote a commentary of my Kerlin Lecture, New York City Rules! He begins:

"When Dr. Barry Commoner inaugurated the Gilbert and Sarah Kerlin Professor of Law lecture series, he began by speaking about New York City and how its population slowly changed the pollution practices of the city. He related the story of how he and a small band of lawyers, community organizers and citizens stood athwart the medical waste incineration practices that released un-quantified amounts and unnamed dioxins into the atmosphere, which accumulated in milk, dairy and meat products. While Dr. Commoner delivered his address in Fall of 1999, 14 years later his discussion of slow progress shaping New York City is not far from the heart of the new Gilbert and Sarah Kerlin Professor of Law, Professor Jason Czarnezki."
