For the past 32 years, the students at Cardozo Law have had the privilege of hearing Founding Partner Leon Wildes speak about his legendary successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, in their high profile deportation proceedings initiated by the Nixon administration. 

This fall, Managing Partner Michael Wildes graciously accepted the honor of continuing the legacy of his father as Adjunct Professor of Immigration Law.



Leon Wildes, pictured above, at Cardozo Law School along with son Michael Wildes, appeared as a guest lecturer to expound upon the historical Lennon case to an audience of Michael's current law students.  For more on Leon Wildes' representation of John Lennon, please click here.
