PROFESSOR IS NEW JERSEY'S EDUCATION LAW DEAN

 

Paul Tractenberg has been called the father of school equity in New Jersey, its dean, and even,by one writer, its all-knowing Yoda.

Starting as a young law professor at Rutgers Law School in the early 1970s, he founded the Education Law Center in Newark, the lead player in the longest-running school finance case in the nation, Abbott v. Burke.

As the center’s first director and sage advisor, he has argued and consulted in the case before the state Supreme Court, helping to bring billions in dollars and sweeping reforms to New Jersey’s urban schools. For close to 40 years, the New Jersey State Bar Association member has represented much of the intellect, if not the heart, behind the landmark decisions.“

There were many builders (of Abbott) along the way, but "Paul has always been its architect," said Lawrence Lustberg, a law center board member and longtime ally.
