Great news to share
Though I don't typically traffic in such information when it's done so ably by friends on other blogs, I'm delighted to announce (from the CDG airport) that two close friends of the Prawfs community were recently appointed to important decanal positions at major law schools.
First, my former co-author and friend, Jennifer M. Collins, was selected to be the dean of the SMU Dedman School of Law in Dallas, TX. You can read more about it here.
Second, another friend, and fellow Canadian, Austen Parrish, was selected to be the new dean at Indiana - Bloomington's Maurer Law school. Austen had previously been interim dean at Southwestern and in an earlier part of our career, we had the chance to break bread in glorious Vancouver at UBC, along with Trevor Morrison. Trevor's already set the trail for BC-niks heading up important law schools, and you can see his sharp assesssment of Austen at the bottom of this law porn press release over here.
