Sean Moriarty Joins the Law School as New Chief Advancement Officer

Brooklyn Law School has named Sean P. Moriarty, who has a long-standing record of success in fundraising and alumni operations for higher education institutions, as chief advancement officer leading the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.

Moriarty will oversee all development and alumni relations efforts and create a top-level operation that will advance the Law School mission by raising money to support students, faculty, and programs; engage alumni; and build relationships with friends and prospective supporters.

I am excited and honored to join Brooklyn Law School. This is an institution that is important to Brooklyn, to New York, and beyond."

Moriarty joins the Law School from CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College, where he served as vice president for institutional advancement. Before that, he spent nearly seven years as assistant vice president for development and alumni relations at the New School, where he raised more than $20 million annually and led a team of 43 people. His background also includes work at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he served as deputy director of development, and at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, where he served as vice president for development. At St. Francis College, he led a $25 million capital campaign. Early in his career he was a grants writer, and he worked as a journalist for Boston-area publications.

“We are very pleased to welcome Sean to the Law School,” said Stuart Subotnick ’68, chairman of the Board of Trustees. “With his impressive accomplishments in fundraising and development leadership, I am confident that he will place us in an excellent position to generate the resources and build the relationships necessary to support world-class scholarship, attract talented and promising students, and offer one of the finest legal educations and law school experiences in the nation.”

“I am excited and honored to join Brooklyn Law School,” Moriarty said. “This is an institution that is important to Brooklyn, to New York, and beyond. I look forward to collaborating with Dean Allard, the Board of Trustees, and the academic leadership of the Law School as we work to increase broad-based philanthropic support to advance our mission and to support the education of our students.”
