The Liberty Central School District community was deeply saddened to learn of the unexpected death of Mr. Joseph Rubin, Liberty High School class of 1956, on Sept. 1.
Mr. Rubin was a lawyer, professor, and director of an executive training institute who graduated from Liberty in 1956 and was inducted into the district’s Wall of Fame on June 28, just two months before his death. As a guest speaker at the graduation ceremony for Liberty’s class of 2014, Mr. Rubin told those assembled that one of his proudest accomplishments was being chosen for the Wall of Fame.
Mr. Rubin began practicing law as an associate and special counsel and established his own practice, Joseph Rubin and Associates in 1981. In 1986, he founded Rubin & Bailin, LLP in New York City where he advised several governments and companies on economic and legal matters. He later became a professor at Columbia University, where he taught courses in law, business management, entrepreneurship, and international privatization.
Rubin was the founder and director of Executive Training International, LLP, a international executive training institute, through which he conducted management training programs in Russia, China and the USA.
An accomplished photographer, Rubin’s work has been featured in the New York Times, Inter-American Magazine, Americas Magazine, among other University publications. His book, “Reflections” features a series of photographs taken near his home in New York City.
