Robert W. Adler, current Interim Dean of the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and Distinguished Professor of Law, will continue as the College’s next Dean, pending approval by the Board of Trustees.
As Interim Dean for the past year, he has worked to shepherd the college’s new building project, enhance the College’s reputation, provide students with opportunities for service learning, engage the community and encourage student-faculty research collaborations. Under his leadership, the College of Law was ranked second in the nation for student clinical opportunities by National Jurist magazine in January 2014.
“At this critical time for the progress of the new building and the continuation and expansion of the law school’s educational centers and programs, Dean Adler’s great dedication and tireless efforts have been invaluable,” said Vicki Baldwin, president of the College of Law’s Alumni Board of Trustees. “We were very pleased with his appointment.”
