Search for the Rutgers Law School Dean
We are seeking a thoughtful and dynamic individual to lead the Rutgers Law School beginning with the 2023–24 academic year.
As a steward of excellence at both Law School locations, the new dean will be responsible for ensuring that Rutgers Law School expands and deepens a coherent universitywide mission while continuing to support location-specific activities and commitments to local cultures.
We will aim to identify a leader who will improve the lived experience of staff, faculty, and students; who can amplify the aspirations of the two locations at Camden and Newark; and who will work with faculty, staff, students, and alumni to share the many strengths and accomplishments of the Rutgers Law School.
