Backed by a community of outstanding legal scholars, students, and alumni, Brooklyn Law School is driving forward to help students meet the demands of a new world of law. One of the School’s greatest strengths is the composition, diversity, and achievements of its faculty, who are gifted teachers in the classroom and renowned scholars and policy shapers in the larger community. Combining traditional course offerings and teaching methodologies with innovative professional skills training courses, Brooklyn Law School’s nationally renowned clinical program, one of the first of its kind, is today one of the country’s most diverse and comprehensive professional skills programs.
Providing strategic and operational leadership for the Office of Development and the Office of External Affairs, the incoming Chief Advancement Officer will benefit from visionary and bold academic leadership, engaged and passionate Trustees, and untapped philanthropic potential from a dedicated alumni base. This individual will manage the Law School’s philanthropic growth by cultivating revenue streams and avenues for fundraising; ensure the stable, long-term growth and expansion of development; create and sustain a positive public brand for the Law School through marketing and communication strategies, and the development of relationships with external constituencies; and work with the Law School’s leadership, faculty, and Board of Trustees to further the overall mission of the Law School.
Brooklyn’s next CAO must be an innovative and inspirational leader who has a track record of establishing best practices, implementing innovative systems, and coaching and mentoring team members. The ideal candidate will lead by example, building on donors’ strong affinity to the school, while creating a plan to further enhance Brooklyn Law’s visibility, expanding the donor pipeline to deepen a culture of philanthropy to sustain and grow the institution’s impact.
