As interim dean for the past year, he has worked to shepherd the college’s new building project, enhance the college’s reputation, provide students with opportunities for service learning, engage the community and encourage student-faculty research collaborations. Under his leadership, the college was ranked second in the nation for student clinical opportunities by National Jurist magazine in January 2014.

“Through his leadership, Dean Adler has enhanced the success of the College of Law, and his efforts have earned the trust and respect of the community both on and off campus,” said Ruth Watkins, senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “He will be a tremendous asset to the university leadership team, and I look forward to working with him as we complete the new law school building and meet the challenges facing legal education.”

Prior to entering academia, he had a distinguished career in law practice, including working for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, Trustees for Alaska and the Natural Resource Defense Council.

A graduate of Georgetown University Law, Adler has co-authored two leading casebooks, has published two highly regarded books, 28 law review articles and numerous book chapters, reports and other articles.
