Bobbi C. Sternheim


1992-93 – Bobbi C. Sternheim litigates a broad range of complex criminal and civil matters in federal and state courts. She is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the first (and only) woman to receive New York Criminal Bar Association’s Award for Professional Excellence. She holds two post-JD degrees: a Master’s in Forensic Psychology and an LL.M. in Advocacy. Ms. Sternheim is Director of Cardozo Law School’s Intensive Trial Advocacy Program, teaches trial advocacy at Pace Law School, and has been on the faculty of Stetson Law School and the Federal CJA Trial Skills Academy. She is the Criminal Justice Act Representative for the Southern District of New York; the Defender Services Advisory Group Representative for the First, Second and D.C. Circuits; and a member of SDNY’s CJA Peer Review Committee and Mentor Programs. Ms. Sternheim fondly remembers the excitement of her induction as NYWBA President and the honoring of Anita Hill at our Annual Dinner during the “Year of the Women,” which launched many remarkable political and professional achievements for women.
