Hofstra Law Alumni Association Installs New Officers and Committee Co-Chairs

At the Alumni Association open board meeting on Sept. 27, a new slate of officers and committee co-chairs was approved.

Michael Schnipper ’04 was elected as president to lead the 14-member Alumni Association Executive Board. A corporate and health care partner in the Long Island office of Nixon Peabody, he was previously the secretary to the board and had served as co-chair of the Career Services Committee.

Richard Schoenstein ’90, who served as president for his full four-year term, was thanked by Judge A. Gail Prudenti, dean, and all in attendance for his outstanding leadership and commitment to the Alumni Association.

“It is an honor to be elected president of Hofstra Law’s Alumni Association, an organization dedicated to providing professional development and networking opportunities for our alumni as well as engaging them in grooming our students to be practice-ready upon graduation,” says Schnipper. “Alumni are invited to participate in hands-on experiential-learning programs, a strong CLE curriculum, a robust mentorship program, and more. I look forward to working closely with Dean A. Gail Prudenti and my fellow alumni to continue growing this already active and robust association. If anyone is interested in getting involved, please do not hesitate to reach out.”
