Larry Pisahov is a third-year student at Touro Law, and he is a Research Editor of the Touro Law Review and the Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Race, Gender, & Ethnicity. Larry decided to go to law school because he is passionate about public interest and the criminal justice system. He enjoys making a positive contribution to the community and plans to use his law degree to improve his community and help as many people as he can.
Throughout law school, Larry has worked diligently to hone his litigation skills through internships with two federal judges, two District Attorney’s Offices, and a public defender’s office, totaling more than 500 hours in the public sector. Larry’s experiences have provided him with a unique perspective of the criminal justice system as he has been exposed to all three sides: the judicial, the prosecution, and the defense. His experiences in law school confirmed his interest in serving the public through a career in law.
Larry has recently accepted a position as an Assistant District Attorney with The Bronx County District Attorney’s Office. He stated, “I am honored and excited to continue my work in public interest as a prosecutor after graduation.” He says his is especially grateful to many professors and administrators at Touro Law for their continued support in making his success possible, including Dean Berman, Professor Levine, Professor Kaufman, Professor Seplowitz, Susan Thompson, and many others. His advice to fellow law students and those thinking about attending law school is, “Work hard and never give up because hard work always pays off.”
