Peter T. Roach Featured As Alumnus of the Month By St. John’s University
On an August evening in 1974, St. John’s University, School of Law opened its doors to a young and ambitious Peter Roach. For the following four years the professors at St. John’s invested their time, energy and scholarship in Mr. Roach. While every professor dreams that their students will “do great things” few expect a return of the magnitude St. John’s received from Peter Roach.
From 1974 through 1978 Mr. Roach lived as a working husband and father by day and a driven, diligent, and exhausted student of the law by night. His strong work ethic, coupled with an unfaltering dedication, propelled Mr. Roach to the top of his class and set the standard for St. John’s law students for years to come.
Fortunately for Mr. Roach’s successor students, the doors to St. John’s University remained open for Mr. Roach’s return in 1988. After Mr. Roach graduated law school and established himself as a “Grade – A” Real Estate and Foreclosure Attorney in the State of New York, and staying true to his roots, Mr. Roach began teaching as an adjunct professor in the night program at St. John’s. In true “Roach” fashion, Mr. Roach remained a working husband and father by day (this time also running a Foreclosure Law Firm and a Mortgage Lending business) and an enthusiastic and dedicated Professor by night (this time also being an active alumnus and president of the Law School’s Alumni Association from 2002 through 2004).
As a Professor, Mr. Roach is known for his engaging tactics, his clarity and thoroughness with the material, and his undying dedication to the students. To wit, Mr. Roach has a reputation for staying after class, at times until 11:00 P.M., and for providing the “best review session” for his final examinations. Teaching in the evening for nearly 25 years, in both the Fall and Spring semesters, Mr. Roach has held each of his students to the standard he himself set and has pushed some past it. As a result of Mr. Roach’s dedication, St. John’s has enjoyed seeing St. John’s students emanate his success in the legal profession.
For Mr. Roach’s accomplishments as a student, a “Super Lawyer”, an alumnus, and a professor, and in acknowledgment for all that Mr. Roach has given back to the law school, St. John’s University named Mr. Roach as the January 2011 Alumnus of the Month.
