Nick Horan

Associate Director of Academic Enrichment


Nick Horan grew up in Hamilton, Massachusetts. He received his BA in History and JD from Northeastern University. Upon graduation from law school in 2009, Nick joined Cooley Manion Jones LLP, (now Manning Gross + Massenburg LLP), focusing on complex business litigation. He later became an associate at Keegan Werlin LLP, where he worked on regulatory matters for public utilities in New England. He was also a volunteer lawyer for Kids in Need of Defense and, in that role, he protected from deportation immigrant children who entered the United States unaccompanied by a parent or guardian, and served as a court-appointed guardian for various clients. He also participated in the creation of a lawyers’ collaborative designed to provide affordable family law services to clients having limited financial resources.

Prior to joining Boston University School of Law, Nick spent just under a year living in Kigali, Rwanda, and working for Bridge2Rwanda, a nonprofit that prepares some of the brightest high school graduates in East Africa to compete for scholarships and attend college in the United States. At Bridge2Rwanda, Nick was an academic adviser and lecturer, training scholars in critical thinking and advanced writing.

Nick is a life-long soccer player and fan, and captained his team in the Men’s BSSC league. He enjoys watching nature documentaries of all types, and he still is fascinated by history (his undergraduate major) and reads whatever he can whenever he has time. Most of all, he loves to spend time with his wife, Patricia, and their two young children, Clio and Max, at their home in Boston’s South End.
