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!

This week, we are featuring three fantastic law students: Sarah Hsu ’17, Solomon Brown ’17, and Brendan George ’16.  Solomon even has his own line of quality mens ties.

Who says aspiring lawyers cannot be fashionistas as well? Check out the different styles of NYU Law! If you know someone (a fellow student, YOURSELF, or a member of the faculty) that you think should be featured, send us a tip at
