Statement of New York City Bar Association President Samuel W. Seymour on the Appointment of Anthony Crowell as New York Law School Dean and President

We are delighted to hear that New York Law School has chosen Anthony Crowell as Dean and President. The City Bar worked closely with Mr. Crowell while serving victims and families after the 9/11 attacks, when he did excellent work as counsel at the City's Family Assistance Center and as director of the Death Certificate Program for WTC victims. A former member of our Government Ethics Committee, he also received our City Bar's Municipal Affairs Award, which recognizes City Law Department attorneys for their outstanding work. The New York City Bar congratulates and offers our best wishes to Dean Crowell and New York Law School, an important partner in the New York legal community.
