In Honor of Judge Ronald S. W. Lew

In support of the NJCHS’ oral history mission we have started to create Tribute pages to honor the lives and legacies of judges who are no longer with us. These pages provide links to the Judge’s oral histories (if available) and information about important cases the judge presided over, but also allow for former law clerks, colleagues, and family to add pictures and recollections that create a fuller and more lasting picture of the Judge, and his or her legacy.

We hope you will submit your own memories of the Judge to help others understand the Judge’s impact on the law and on those who were his clerk “family.”
