A K Street icon is leaving lobbying to become dean of a New York law school, The Hill has confirmed.

Nick Allard will leave his position as partner at Patton Boggs to join Brooklyn Law School in July. Allard chairs the public policy and lobbying department at the prominent firm.

No decision has been made on his replacement at the Patton Boggs, Allard confirmed.

"Some people wonder how in the world I could trade in working on a daily basis with Tom Boggs, Ed Newberry, Ben Ginsberg, Jeff Turner, John Breaux and so many others in the original and top policy firm in the galaxy,” Allard told The Hill in a statement.

“It ain't easy. But the opportunity at Brooklyn Law School is irresistible because it is at the forefront of 21st-century legal education."
