In Memoriam: David Gregory

David L. Gregory, retired professor of St. John’s University School of Law passed away on Dec. 16.

He served as the Law School’s Dorothy Day Professor of Law from in 1982 to 2017 during which time he founded the Center for Labor and Employment Law, a forum where students, practitioners and scholars come together to explore the practice and theory of labor and employment law.

An ALI member for over 30 years, Professor Gregory was a lifelong devotee to improving the law, also serving as a member of the American Bar Foundation, the Society of Policy Scientists, the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, the Society of Catholic Social Scientists, and Catholic Scholars for Worker Justice. He authored over two hundred academic and professional publications.

Professor Gregory’s legacy lives on through the David Gregory Labor and Employment Law Scholarship, which was established by family, friends, alumni, and colleagues in Professor Gregory’s honor to benefit St. John’s Law students who want to practice in the field of labor and employment law.
