NALP Foundation Names Fiona Trevelyan Hornblower New President and CEO

The NALP Foundation has named Fiona Trevelyan Hornblower as its President and Chief Executive Officer, effective March 23, 2020.  Ms. Hornblower currently serves as the Assistant Dean for Career Development and Public Service at Boston University.  Prior to joining Boston University in 2013, Ms. Hornblower led Bingham McCutchen’s national legal recruiting efforts and worked as a litigator in private practice.  She is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard College and received her J.D. from Boston College.  She also served as a law clerk to the Honorable Frank M. Coffin of the United States First Circuit Court of Appeals.

“After completing our thorough search, which attracted over 70 candidates, Fiona’s unique experience and background were a perfect fit to take the Foundation forward,” said Liz Price, NALP Foundation Board Chair and Chief Legal Talent Partner at Alston & Bird.  “Her deep law firm experience and deep law school experience will enhance our relationships with all of our constituents and will be invaluable in informing our ongoing and future research studies.”

"I am thrilled to be joining the Foundation, and very much look forward to working with our partner organizations and law schools, as well as the Board and Foundation team, to advance the Foundation’s vital research, elevate the Foundation’s role in addressing issues of critical importance to the profession, and ensure that the Foundation is an indispensable resource for all law schools and legal employers," Ms. Hornblower commented.

Ms. Price added, “We are incredibly fortunate to have had the leadership of Paula Patton and Tammy Patterson as our first two Presidents and CEOs, as well as the great work of Jeremy Bloom as our Interim President and CEO and Jennifer Mandery as our Senior Director of Research.  As the NALP Foundation moves toward its 25th year, we are confident that, with Fiona, Jeremy, and Jennifer, we will continue to make powerful contributions to the increasingly complex legal industry.”
