Memorial Service Tuesday in Manhattan
JORALEMON STREET — The Brooklyn Law School community mourns the loss of a beloved colleague, fabulous teacher and cherished friend, Professor Michael P. Madow.
Over the course of 25 years of service on the law school faculty, teaching and writing in the areas of First Amendment and mass media law, and criminal law, he touched the lives of thousands of students.
“His gentle and unassuming manner could not completely mask a brilliant intellect that his colleagues respected and his students revered,” Interim Dean Michael A. Gerber wrote yesterday in an email to the Brooklyn Law School community. “Although his presence will be missed, it will always be felt by the colleagues and students who knew and cherished him.”
Madow served on the Due Process Committee of the ACLU and the Communications and Media Law Committee of the New York City Bar. He graduated from Amherst College, receiving his master’s degree from Harvard University and his law degree from Columbia University School of Law.
He is survived by his wife, Dr. Karen Brudney, and his children Benjamin and Hannah.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday at 3 p.m. at the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel, 630 Amsterdam Ave. (at 91st Street), on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
