BALSA Honors Brooklyn DA, NYC Corporation Counsel, and Law Professor at Fourth Annual Black History Month Gala

Last Wednesday, over 200 guests descended on the Rosenthal Pavilion, at New York University’s Kimmel Center, for the Fourth Annual Black History Month Gala. Sponsored by the Black Allied Law Students Association of NYU Law – the first such chapter of its kind in the country – the Gala drew esteemed guests and honorees from all across New York City’s legal community.

This year’s theme was Keep the Fire Burning: Promoting Social Justice Through the Black Lives Matter Movement. Honorees included Paulette Caldwell, Professor of Law at New York University School of Law; Zachary Carter ’75, New York City Corporation Counsel; and Kenneth Thompson ’92, Kings County District Attorney.

When you walk down the halls of Vanderbilt and Furman, not only do you see some of the smartest and most accomplished people in New York City, but also some of the most fashionable. NYU Law has style and it is time we show it!

When you walk down the halls of Vanderbilt and Furman, not only do you see some of the smartest and most accomplished people in New York City, but also some of the most fashionable. NYU Law has style and it is time we show it!

This week, we are featuring three fantastic law students: Sarah Hsu ’17, Solomon Brown ’17, and Brendan George ’16.

There are 90 days left until graduation. For me, this means there are only 90 days left to be a student. So, instead of #3LOL, I am #3MonthsLeft. I will chronicle one experience—old or new—every week, for three months, to uncover the little treasures this city has to offer (outside of Vanderbilt Hall).
