HEMPSTEAD – Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz on Friday named bankruptcy law professor Alan Resnick as interim dean of the university’s School of Law. Resnick, whose interim term begins June 1, replaces David Yellen, who last week announced that he would not seek a second term as dean.

Resnick, who joined the law school in 1974, has taught in the bankruptcy, contracts and commercial law areas at the law school and has also served as an associate dean from 1979 to 1981.

Resnick has also been of counsel to the law firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson in New York City since 1989. At Fried Frank, Resnick handles bankruptcy, insolvency and commercial law issues in connection with complex debt restructurings, Chapter 11 reorganization cases, corporate and real estate transactions.

“He brings to the position a wealth of experience as a scholar and a member of the Hofstra community, and his credentials as member of the bar are excellent,” Rabinowitz said.

Resnick received a bachelor’s degree from Rider University and a juris doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center.
