    Joseph Crea

    On May 18, Brooklyn Law School faculty, staff and friends gathered to wish happy birthday to Professor Emeritus Joe Crea ’47, who turned 100 on April 26. During the celebration, Professor Crea spoke with an Associated Press reporter about the classes he has taught and the secret to a long career.

    "Stay well," he told the reporter. "And make sure they don't want to kick you out."

    Professor Crea taught as recently as 2014 and continues to advise faculty members and participate in admissions committee meetings. His teaching career at the Law School has spanned more than six decades.

    The AP story was picked up by numerous media outlets, including The New York Times, NPR, The Huffington Post, CBS News, and more.

    The Law School will honor Professor Crea and seven others on June 11 at the Salute to Brooklyn Law School Icons Gala, which will be held on Ellis Island.
