    Michael Tenenhaus

    Michael Tenenhaus has joined Brooklyn Law School as Professional Development Manager in the Office of Career and Professional Development. In this new position at the Law School, Tenenhaus will coordinate learning and development programming for the Career Center, work with alumni and student organizations to develop training plans, and develop strategies to further advance the Law School’s career development programs. He will report to Karen Eisen, Dean of Career and Professional Development.

    Tenenhaus comes to the Law School from Seward & Kissel, where he has worked as a bankruptcy and reorganization associate since 2014. He also worked closely with the law firm’s recruiting department, conducting interviews with summer associate applicants and submitting the firm’s work for rankings. At Seward & Kissel, Tenenhaus led the in-house Justice Resource Center’s pro bono work, which included coaching the moot court team at an inner-city high school. He also  conducted mock interviews for Hofstra Law Review students to prepare for On-Campus Interviewing (OCI).

    Prior to Seward & Kissel, Tenenhaus spent two years at Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman as a creditors’ rights and bankruptcy associate and mentor to summer and first-year associates. He also has worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, and previously spent several years in investment banking. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Muhlenberg College and earned his J.D. at Hofstra University School of Law.

    "I am proud and excited to join the Brooklyn Law School community and look forward to working with the students, faculty, staff, and alumni,” Tenenhaus said. “The professional development opportunities will complement the innovative legal education this leading institution offers."

    “We are very excited to welcome Michael to the newly created role of Manager of Professional Learning and Development,” said Eisen. “We created this position to ensure that our students are receiving the professional development skills and experience they need to succeed in today’s expanding and changing legal market. He will work closely with students, faculty, career counselors, employers and other leaders in the legal industry to proactively determine learning needs in career and professional development and develop solutions for those needs.”
