Event Details

KEVAN CLEARY

Recipient, "2014 Outstanding Advocate for Science & Technology Award"

The Science Museum of Long Island recently named Kevan Cleary as a recipient of a 2014 OUTSTANDING ADVOCATE FOR SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY AWARD. Kevan will be honored on Wednesday, April 30th at the Westbury Manor for his outstanding contributions toward the advancement and education of science and technology.

Proceeds support the Science Museum of Long Island's programs and services for the children and families of the region! 

A summary of Kevan's impressive list of accomplishments:

Kevan Cleary graduated from Cardozo Law School.  He began work as an attorney with the Cravath firm where he was assigned to David Boies. After leaving Cravath, he was the sole pro-bono attorney allowed by the court to speak at the American hearing arising out of the Bhopal Gas Disaster in India. Mr. Cleary represented families of the victims in that case without compensation.

He then moved to the public sector, taking a position as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York . For non-lawyers, the EDNY covers Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk as well as Staten Island. While at the US Attorney’s office, he represented the Department of Interior, the National Park Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Mr. Cleary brought cases against ivory smugglers, lynx pelt smugglers, destructive dock owners in Jamaica Bay, Oyster Bay and Great South Bay, developers who destroyed wildlife, and a helicopter pilot who harassed nesting Ospreys.  In addition he served on the team which successfully sued Exon Oil Company for leaching benzene and other toxins into New York harbor.  He also oversaw the removal of a sunken barge from New York harbor.

Recently, Mr. Cleary, as co-chair of the New York County Lawyers Association Animal Law Committee, recently hosted a widely attended forum on Animal Rescue Law.

He has also written guest columns on animal issues for the New York Daily News and on environmental issues for the Martha’s Vineyard Gazette. 

The 2014 ADVOCATES FOR SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY AWARDS takes place on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 6pm to 8pm, at Westbury Manor.  For more information, Tracey Gittere at (516) 222-0550 or TGittere@LegendaryEvents.net
