Brooklyn Law School to Name Chairs to Honor Past Leaders
The Brooklyn Law School has announced the establishment of a chair in global legal studies to recognize the work of the school’s ex-dean and president Nicholas W. Allard.
The school is planning to further establish more such chairs to honor the work by its past leaders and faculty.
“Brooklyn Law School long has enjoyed a deserved reputation as a center of outstanding scholarship and teaching,” said Allard, who served as President and Joseph Crea Dean at the Law School from 2012 to 2018.
“I am proud to be part of this enduring tradition and to help support the work of our world-class faculty. This is a strong philanthropic investment in the future of Brooklyn Law School.”
In 2019, the school is planning to honor the contributions of its leaders, including late David G. Trager, Joan G. Wexler, and I. Leo Glasser, by undertaking various initiatives to support students and faculty.
“This Chair is the first of a series of exciting initiatives to honor the Law School’s tradition of extraordinary leadership in legal education and support faculty scholarship and teaching as well as student success,” said Stuart Subotnick, Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
“Brooklyn Law School has been blessed by giants in the field of law whose impact as teachers and scholars is evidenced in the successful legal careers of our exemplary alumni. In the months ahead, we look forward to garnering philanthropic support from our alumni and friends in the wider legal community to advance initiatives that build on the foundation established by these trailblazers,” Subotnick added.
