Professors Vaughn and Kelly Named as Interim Associate Deans

Professor of Law Lea Vaughn and Bobbe & Jonathan Bridge Children and Family Advocacy Professor Lisa Kelly have agreed to serve as Interim Associate Deans for the coming academic year. Kelly, who is the director of the Children and Youth Advocacy Clinic, and Vaughn will both continue to teach classes. The announcement was made as a result the decision by UW Provost Phyllis Wise to name Gregory Hicks, professor and former associate dean for faculty and academic administration, as Interim Dean of the law school. Hicks' appointment followed Joe Knight's recent resignation as Dean, which was effective June 15. Knight will remain a tenured member of the faculty.
