BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Alan S. Carrel, associate dean for external affairs in the University at Buffalo School of Law, has been appointed to the new position of vice dean for administration in the law school.

In his new position, Carrel will have authority over non-academic matters. He will continue to direct alumni affairs, career development, fund-raising and public relations, and now also will oversee student services, expenditure controls, space allocations, personnel matters and student disciplinary problems. In addition, he will represent the law school with university officials concerning finances and facilities.

"Alan is adept in getting people to work together," said Dean Barry B. Boyer. "With the redistribution of responsibilities, I feel confident these important segments of the law school's administration are in capable hands."

Carrel, who graduated from the UB law school in 1967, practiced law in Buffalo for 11 years and was a partner in the firm of Rosen, Yasinow, Roberts, Rich & Carrel when he joined the law school staff as associate dean in 1978.

He is an active member of the Bar Association of Erie County, American Association of Law Schools, New York State Bar Association, Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, National Society of Fund Raising Executives and the American Bar Association.

An alumnus of Hamilton College, Carrel is also a director of the Legal Aid Bureau and the past president of Jewish Federation Housing.

He resides in Williamsville.
