Sills Cummis & Gross P.C. is pleased to announce that Hervé Gouraige was inducted as the new President of the Harvard Law School Association of New Jersey on November 8, 2011. The outgoing President was Paula A. Tuffin, an alumna of Sills Cummis & Gross. Mr. Gouraige is a Member of the Sills Cummis & Gross Litigation Practice Group, engaging in civil and criminal litigation, including health care fraud litigation (False Claims Act cases), general commercial litigation (and class actions), white collar criminal defense and internal corporate investigations.
During his two-year term as President, he will concentrate on increasing membership of the Association, especially seeking to attract more recent Harvard Law School graduates living or practicing in New Jersey, encourage alumni/ae of the School to live and practice in New Jersey by promoting and expanding the Association’s ties with the Law School through its Summer Internship program, and continuing the excellent tradition of the Vanderbilt Dinner and Lecture of attracting prominent Law School graduates to deliver a talk on some aspect of legal development and administration of justice.
The Harvard Law School Association was founded at Cambridge, Massachusetts on September 23, 1886, to serve as the alumni association for Harvard Law School and has spawned numerous local Associations. HLSA-NJ is dedicated to strengthening the links between the Law School, its alumni who live or practice in New Jersey, and its students, with an emphasis on providing social networking and educational opportunities for alumni and encouraging current students to return to New Jersey to clerk and practice. To these ends, it sponsors events in New Jersey and Cambridge and supports the Law School through contributions, including support for its students who take summer public interest positions in New Jersey.
