A new search begins for law school dean

UW Provost Phyllis Wise is moving forward on the search for the dean of the UW School of Law. She recently announced that Greg Hicks has agreed to continue as interim dean until a new dean has been selected. A new search committee has been formed and is comprised of distinguished law school faculty, staff, alumni, members of the judiciary and local legal community, and university officials. The search committee is charged with establishing protocols for obtaining the opinions of the broader UW and legal community throughout the search process. The provost's web site offers updates, as well more details about the committee and the process.
