wendy-scott-new-dean-mississippi-college-school-of-law

Wendy Scott is settling into her new role as the dean of the Mississippi School of Law. The eighth dean of the law school, she’s the first African American to serve in this position. She is a graduate of Harvard University and New York University School of Law. She has taught as a law professor at both the North Carolina Central School of Law and Tulane Law School. She was also associate dean for academic affairs from 2009 to 2012 at the North Carolina Central School of Law. Mississippi College School of Law is excited to welcome her to its campus.

Scott succeeds Jim Rosenblatt, who was dean for the past 11 years. Scott stated that Rosenblatt has been the face of the law school and that she had big shoes to fill. Rosenblatt will remain at the law school as a full-time professor while Scott takes over as dean for the law school.

Rosenblatt praised Scott, stating that she’d do great things at the Mississippi College School of Law. Mississippi College President Lee Royce declared that Scott has “distinguished herself as a lawyer, teacher, legal scholar and administrator…we are so pleased to have someone so well known and respected in the legal academy provide leadership for our law school.”
