Boise was the dean at Cleveland-Marshall for the past five years, boosting the practical skills offered and launching a solo practice incubator program. University chancellor Kent Syverud said, “Craig’s bold vision and commitment to academic excellence have enhanced the student experience, improved student outcomes and positioned graduates for career success. He is the ideal person to lead the College of Law into a new era, particularly as it seeks to enhance its global reputation and continue its ascent in national rankings.”

Loyola Law School, Los Angeles made their announcement of a new dean the day before. Michael Waterstone, a professor at the school, will be the new dean.
