Ouellette will start her new position on July 1, though she has been the acting dean since October. Andrews will now focus on strategic initiatives for the law school. This includes a proposal to join the University at Albany.

Read about the proposal here.

Albany Law School has roughly 470 students. Recently, like many other law schools in the country, its enrollment has declined. Leaders of the law school, including Governor Andrew Cuomo and Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, are brainstorming ways to recreate the law school’s model. According to Wikipedia, it is the oldest independent law school in the country.

The school may join the University at Albany as early as the 2015-2016 school year.

The plans include a strategic design to re-envision the curriculum and provide better connections from legal education to career development.

In the spring of 2014, the faculty was scolded for buyouts.

Before she became acting dean, Ouellette served as the associate dean for academic affairs and intellectual life. An alumnus of the school, she was also an assistant solicitor general in the New York state Attorney General’s office.
