Suzanna Publicker ‘09 Named Inaugural Fellow

New York University School of Law and the New York City Police Department have established a fellowship to be awarded annually to an NYU Law graduating student or recent alumnus. Suzanna Publicker ‘09 has been selected as the inaugural NYU-NYPD Fellow.

“This new program continues the Law School’s longstanding commitment to public service,” said Dean and Lawrence King Professor of Law Richard Revesz. “There are few institutions that have been more vital and successful in preserving the well-being and security of New Yorkers than the NYPD, especially in the post-9/11 era. NYU Law School is pleased to partner with the NYPD on this initiative, enabling some of our most talented lawyers to serve this important public institution.”

“We are happy to work with NYU Law School, one of the finest law schools in the country, to attract the very best candidates to come work with the NYPD,” said New York City Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly. “I am confident that Suzanna, and future Law Fellows selected for this program, will find their work both challenging and rewarding.”

Publicker will work at the NYPD under the supervision of the Deputy Commissioner for Legal Matters and will also work with officials in the Intelligence Division, Counterterrorism Bureau, Detective Division, Organized Crime Control Division, and other units. The one-year fellowship carries a stipend of $75,000 and guaranteed placement in the Special Federal Litigation Unit of the New York City Law Department.

The fellowship is funded by a grant from the Police Foundation.
