Brooklyn Law School honors former Dean Nick Allard with portrait-hanging ceremony
The Brooklyn Law School (BLS) Board of Trustees honored former President and Dean Nicholas Allard with a portrait-hanging ceremony at the law school in Downtown Brooklyn on Wednesday.
“Clearly Nick, with the support of our faculty and staff, has moved our school forward to the benefit of the students and the profession,” said Stuart Subotnick, chairperson of the Board of Trustees. “Because of his efforts, we have developed a reputation as an innovative leader in legal education, producing young lawyers who are not only well-educated, but eager to learn and contribute to the profession.”
Allard, who graduated as a Rhodes Scholar from Oxford University and Yale Law School, served as the BLS dean from July 2012 to June 2018, and its president from July 2014 to June 2018.
Nearly 100 of the school’s faculty, alumni and staff packed into the Subotnick Center on Wednesday night for the ceremony. There was a brief introduction by Subotnick, followed by the portrait unveiling by interim Dean Maryellen Fullerton and incoming Dean Michael Cahill, who takes over in July.
