In his recent announcement, Provost Dan Linzer announced that Kim Yuracko, associate dean for academics and professor of law, has agreed to serve as interim dean of the School of Law beginning in January 2011 and continuing until our new Dean arrives. The dean search committee has been formed, which Dorothy Roberts, Kirkland & Ellis Professor of Law, has agreed to chair. The University also has secured the services of the executive search firm of Russell Reynolds to assist with the search. The committee is now conducting a set of outreach meetings with faculty, students, staff, alumni, and other community members designed to solicit counsel on the desired attributes of the next dean. We invite you to forward the names of potential internal and external candidates for the deanship to the Committee for its consideration. All information will be treated confidentially. We anticipate that the search process will be conducted during the fall and spring semesters and we will provide you with periodic updates throughout.
As David Van Zandt leaves Northwestern Law after 25 years of serving as dean and professor to become president of The New School in New York, we have been hosting events throughout the country where you can join alumni and friends in bidding him farewell. Our remaining regional events will be held in the following cities:
Classes of 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, and 2006 will celebrate Reunion October 14-15, 2011. Reunion committee members will participate in planning meetings and help reach out to encourage classmates to attend Reunion Weekend. To join your class committee, contact Sarah Kalsbeek at (312) 503-1768.
Fox Productions has selected Northwestern Law School as one of its primary locations to film the upcoming police drama The Chicago Code. Filming began in August, and Levy Mayer 212 serves as the main taping location at the Law School. The Chicago Code will air on the Fox network on Monday, February 7.
