Brooklyn Law School Teams With Deloitte To Promote Thinking Like A Business Person

More than 50 prominent Brooklyn Law School alumni led interactive breakout sessions and shared with students their experiences as practitioners and entrepreneurs. These alumni included partners in major law firms, CEOs, and general counsels of established companies and startups.  The program culminated in a networking reception for the students and alumni.

By all accounts the program exceeded all expectations.  "The response from both students and alumni to this program was overwhelmingly positive. Our students clearly understand that, in these challenging times, arming themselves with highly tangible and relevant professional and business skills better prepares them for careers in business and entrepreneurship," said Nick Allard, Dean of the Law School.  

Encouraging students to reach outside of their "legal toolkit" was a theme that ran throughout the course.  "As every seasoned lawyer knows, there are times when lawyers need to reach beyond their legal training to effectively advise and represent their clients," said Professor Michael Gerber, who chairs the faculty group that helped to develop the course. "The ability to think like a business person as well as a lawyer is extremely useful, and we designed this course to enable students — even those who have never studied business, finance or economics — to do just that."
