Cheers to borough daughter Mary Lu Bilek, dean at City University of New York School of Law, on being named one of the “Most Influential People in Legal Education, 2016” nationwide by National Jurist, a leading news source for law students.
“I am honored to be included on this list of legal education change agents, and look forward to working to forge stronger connections between legal education and the legal profession,” said Dean Bilek.
“CUNY Law, which is uniquely committed to a passion for the law as a tool for public service, is extremely fortunate to have a leader with the vision and experience of Dean Bilek,” said the school’s chancellor James B. Milliken.
Dean Bilek helped to develop the law school’s innovative curriculum for practice and led it through the accreditation process in the 1980s and early 1990s. In 2006, she spearheaded the creation of the Pipeline to Justice at CUNY Law; and in 2012, she took the helm at University of Massachusetts School of Law.
