Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York are famously independent. They prosecute some of the most notorious and far-reaching crime in the country, from terrorism and organized crime to Wall Street misconduct and political corruption. In this special event at Columbia Law School, MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber and CAPI Executive Director Berit Berger host a public discussion about this office’s historic work with a truly rare panel: Seven different public servants who have held the title of U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, with experience spanning six consecutive presidential administrations.

Panelists include former SDNY U.S. Attorneys Joon Kim, Bob Fiske, Lev Dassin, David Kelley, John Martin, Benito Romano, and Judge Mike Garcia.
