Patrick J. Rohan’s connection to St. John’s reaches back more than half a century. He graduated from St. John’s University in 1954 and from the School of Law in 1956. Two years later, he joined the Law School faculty, where he served for fifty-two years until his retirement in June 2009. He died just a few months later, on November 26, 2009. The School of Law community mourns the passing of this man of St. John’s—Dean Emeritus, Professor of Law, alumnus, supporter, and friend.
