Law Schools Hunt for New Deans
According to the National Law Journal, numerous law schools are hunting for new deans, even in the economic downturn. But qualified professionals may not want the job.
Even in this economy, there seems to still be a demand for one high-paying job — law school dean. At least 27 law schools throughout the country are searching for new deans — and many are having a tough time filling the position.
Law schools from Harvard to the University of Arizona to Case Western to the University of Miami have all embarked on dean searches, and some are finding somewhat slim pickings, with the same applicants recycled for many of the jobs.
That’s because law school deanships, once highly sought after, are now high-stress jobs, thanks in part to the economy.
