Jennifer Correale

NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene
Executive Agency Counsel
Long Island City, NY, USA


I graduated cum laude from Pace University School of Law in 1994 with a certificate in International Law.  Part of my degree was obtained through University College London where I studied and interned with a criminal barrister in 1993.  My publications include: The Torture Victim Protection Act: A Vital Contribution to International Human Rights Enforcement or Just a Nice Gesture? (Pace University International Law Review, Winter 1994 edition).  I was born and raised, and still reside, in Bronx County.  Following law school I spent 5 years as a Bronx Assistant District Attorney.  I then went on to a medical malpractice defense firm – McAloon & Friedman, P.C. – and then to Bellevue Hospital Center.  I spent a decade in-house at Bellevue, specializing in legal/psychiatric issues.  I am currently the supervising attorney for the Mental Hygiene Bureau of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.  I am also a clinical instructor for the Department of Forensic Psychiatry at New York University Langone Medical Center.  Litigation is the mainstay of my career and continues to be.  This includes my recent expansion into school health and employment law.  I have also done a number of EEO cases pro bono, in federal court, for employees of the United States Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  I very much enjoy teaching and am honored by the request to contribute to PLI.
