Interim law dean named

Suzanne Reynolds

Suzanne Reynolds

A message from Provost Rogan Kersh

This to affirm that Suzanne Reynolds (JD ’77) has graciously accepted my request to serve as Interim Dean for the coming academic year.  Ron Wright, similarly graciously, has agreed to replace Suzanne for the year as Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

President Hatch and I wish Dean Morant well as he transitions to his new position in Washington.  We have great confidence in our Law leadership team, under the experienced guidance of Suzanne, and look forward to working with the team–and, indeed, with all of you–to successfully navigate the shifting winds of legal education.

Ron Wright

Ron Wright

As President Hatch indicated in his university-wide note last week, we will launch a national search for Dean Morant’s successor, beginning this September.  My grateful thanks in advance to each of you for your support of this vital endeavor.  And a special note of appreciation to Suzanne and Ron for their willingness to take on these essential interim roles: your support will be all the more valued as we steer a forward course together.

Morant named GWU law dean

dean.morant.300x175President Nathan Hatch sent the following message to faculty, staff and students:

After seven years of exemplary service to Wake Forest University as Dean of the School of Law, Blake D. Morant will become Dean of George Washington University Law School on Sept. 1, 2014.

Under Dean Morant’s leadership, the Wake Forest School of Law has thrived despite the turbulent times legal education and the industry have faced nationally. As Dean since 2007, his tenure has seen a 13-point rise in U.S. News & World Report’s rankings to 31st, the law school’s highest-ever ranking. That rise also represents the highest jump by any law school ranked in the Top 50 in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
