“It has been an honor to serve as Wayne Law’s dean for the past several years,” Ackerman said. “We have become a leader in clinical education, public interest and civil rights law, and international law. Exciting programs are under way in business and entrepreneurship. I look forward to joining the ranks of our full-time faculty and spending more time with our wonderful students.”

 

The acting dean will be John Rothchild, who is currently the associate dean and associate professor of law. He will serve as acting dean until an interim dean can be named for the law school. Rothchild has been a member of the law school’s faculty since 2001.
