Marlene Goldstein has gifted New England Law | Boston $1 million in memory of her late husband, Dr. Arnold S. Goldstein, a proud 1964 graduate of the law school.
With this gift, the New England Law community will celebrate Dr. Goldstein’s lifetime of accomplishments and dedication to opportunity through education with the establishment of the Dr. Arnold S. Goldstein Lecture Hall.
“Arnold always cherished his time as a member of the New England Law community,” said Mrs. Goldstein. “He loved coming back to visit, especially when given the opportunity to speak with and provide mentorship to current law students—a responsibility he took very seriously.”
Mrs. Goldstein selected the room (formerly #305) because Dr. Goldstein used to lecture there. Passionate about education, Dr. Goldstein brought a practical perspective to the classroom, informed by his many years as an entrepreneur, author, and attorney.
Dr. Goldstein founded his legal practice, Arnold S. Goldstein and Associates, LLC, after serving as a managing partner at Presser & Goldstein, LLC. He was also a professor of pharmacy at Northeastern University, where he earned his PhD in 1990, and a professor of business at Lynn University in Florida.
“The Goldsteins are long-time friends and supporters of the law school, and I recall many happy memories of our time together both here in Boston and, later, at their family home in Florida,” said John O’Brien, President.
“We are grateful for Mrs. Goldstein's generous donation and feel privileged to be able to honor Dr. Goldstein's legacy here within the walls of our law school.”
In addition to being a loyal and dedicated member of the New England Law family, Dr. Goldstein was a member of the state, federal, and U.S. Supreme Court Bars. He held five academic degrees and authored more than 100 books on law, finance, and asset protection. He passed away in 2010 at his home in Florida.
