michael wildes to serve as adjunct professor of immigration law at the benjamin n. cardozo school of law

NEW YORK, NY—July 12, 2011 – Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. is pleased to announce that Managing Partner, Michael Wildes, will join the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City as Adjunct Professor of Immigration Law this fall. Michael’s course will focus on the current legal developments affecting immigration practice, naturalization and the nationality laws of the United States.

“As an alumnus of this renowned institution, it’s a privilege for me to return as an Adjunct Professor this coming fall,” said Michael Wildes. “It’s a significant time for U.S. immigration policy right now and I am looking forward to passing along valuable information to help navigate and lead the discourse.”

Founded in 1976 by Yeshiva University, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law has a national reputation for a top-caliber faculty and an innovative academic program.

Immigration law runs in the Wildes family: Michael’s father, Leon Wildes, has served as an Adjunct Professor at Cardozo for over 32 years. Leon is best known for his successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono in deportation proceedings in 1976. It was in one of Leon’s classes that Michael met his wife Amy, also a practicing immigration attorney, in 1989.

“Cardozo is a very special place to me,” said Michael. “Its halls hold many meaningful memories, both professionally and personally, and I am looking forward to the first day of class.”

Early in his twenty-plus year career Michael served as a Federal Prosecutor with the United States Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn (1989-1993). He also spent two terms in office, as Mayor of Englewood, New Jersey (2004-2010) where he resides with his wife Amy and four children.
