The Brooklyn Law School community mourns the loss of a beloved colleague, teacher, and friend, Professor Albert DeMeo. A member of the class of 1934, Professor DeMeo joined the BLS faculty in 1961. Over nearly four decades, he taught a wide variety of courses, including criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence, trial and appellate advocacy, constitutional law, and real estate practice. He retired in 1999.
Prior to joining the faculty, Professor DeMeo was an Assistant United States Attorney in the EDNY and an Assistant District Attorney in Kings County. He also served as an administrative law judge and an arbitrator in the Civil Court of the City of New York. The Law School celebrated his 100th birthday on April 26, 2011 with his friends and former colleagues.
Professor DeMeo touched the lives of thousands of Brooklyn Law students and friends over the years and he will be missed. We extend our deepest sympathy to his son, Robert, and his entire family.
