Nic Rangel ’12 is set to become the next Executive Director of the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York (LASNNY) this December.
LASNNY and Albany Law School have deep and extensive connections with dozens of students working with the organization annually and law school alumni serving as LASNNY staff and board members.
“Nic is the person we need to take LASNNY into our next century,” said James E. Hacker ’84, LASNNY Board Chair in a statement. Hacker is also a member of the law school’s Board of Trustees. “We have grown in size and capacity to serve our low-income clients, and with Nic at the helm we are confident in our future.”
“It is a tremendous honor to be entrusted with leading the largest nonprofit law firm in the capital region,” said Rangel in a statement. “The Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York provides critical legal services across sixteen counties on issues ranging from tenant protections to education rights, and more. Access to civil legal services saves lives and helps stabilize families. I look forward to further empowering the organization and its staff to continue doing this outstanding and meaningful work into our next chapter as it prepares to celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2023.”
