Alumni Connections

Brooklyn Law School has a long tradition of alumni who were trailblazers.

Some of our noteworthy graduates are: Sumner Lark, Class of 1916, the first African-American Assistant District Attorney of New York City; Frieda B. Hennock '24, the first female Federal Communications Commissioner; Hon. Henry Bramwell '48, the first African-American judge appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York; Percy E. Sutton '50, the first African-American Manhattan borough president and founder of the media giant Inner City Broadcasting Corporation; Herman Badillo '54, the first U.S. congressman of Puerto Rican origin; Dorothy Chin-Brandt '74, the first Asian-American woman judge in New York State; and Hon. David N. Dinkins '56, the first African-American Mayor of New York City.

Today, we are proud of the top positions so many of our graduates hold.

Our mentoring program pairs students with graduates who are committed to furthering their professional development. Our large alumni body presents networking and career opportunities for our students that few law schools can match.
