Blueprint for Growth: Staff Transitions, Program Expansion and Enterprise Resource Planning at the CUNY School of Law

Client: CUNY School of Law
Faculty: S.J Avery and Ana Oliveira
Team: Samia Chowdhury, Nicole Kotch, Stacy Repetto, Serena Zeise
Year: 2009
As a state-funded institution with an outstanding track record for graduating students who work in Public Interest Law, the growing success and planned expansion of CUNY School of Law will impact future staffing needs. The Law School asked the Capstone team to develop a staffing needs projection based on three major upcoming changes: the move to a newer, larger facility; the addition of an evening program that will add more students; and CUNY Law's implementation and maintenance of a new CUNY-wide administrative software system. The Capstone team's report provided the CUNY Law Administrators with staffing recommendations based on literature reviews as well as interviews and surveys conducted at CUNY Law, Queens College (the current administrative service provider for CUNY Law), CUNY Central, and other law schools relevant in size and structure.
