The program recognizes 25 women business leaders who are influential in their companies, industries and communities. Moringiello will be honored with her fellow designees at a luncheon May 13 at the Hilton Harrisburg. She will also be profiled in a special insert to the Central Penn Business Journal on May 17.

The publication is tailored to professionals and executives in the Central Pennsylvania region. The print publication has a circulation of more than 11,000.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized with so many women who have done terrific things for Central Pennsylvania,” Moringiello said.

Moringiello joined the Widener Law faculty in 1993 and is admitted to practice in New York and Pennsylvania. She teaches and writes primarily in the areas of commercial law, bankruptcy, property and electronic commerce. She spent the spring 2010 semester serving as the American Bankruptcy Institute Robert N. Zinman resident scholar outside Washington, D.C. and she is a past recipient of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Special Achievement Award. She has lectured around the world, including at a Beijing conference on legal, security and privacy issues in information technology.

“I congratulate Juliet on this achievement,” Ammons said. “Her contributions to this area of the law, and to her Widener classroom, are substantial. It is rewarding to see her recognized this way.”

Moringiello earned her law degree from Fordham University School of Law and an LL.M. from Temple University.

Former Widener Law Harrisburg campus Dean of Students Elizabeth Simcox nominated Moringiello. Simcox now works as executive director of the Dauphin County Bar Association. She said she immediately thought of Moringiello when the call for nominations crossed her desk.

“She has been outstanding in her leadership role at Widener, for both students and her colleagues, and she truly has taken an active role in the Central Pennsylvania community,” Simcox said. “I congratulate Juliet on this award and am so pleased she has been recognized for all of her efforts.”
