Assistant Dean of Graduate Legal Studies Position at Cornell

Although not an ASP position, I thought the following position may be of interest to some of our colleagues since it has ASPish dimensions:

The Assistant Dean of Graduate Legal Studies is responsible for providing overall leadership for the Law School's Graduate Legal Studies Program, and for the ongoing development, planning, management and assessment of the program. The Assistant Dean reports to and coordinates with the Associate Dean for International Affairs. In addition, he or she works closely with the Graduate and International Faculty Committee and the faculty Director of Graduate Legal Studies. The Assistant Dean serves as the primary career counsellor and academic advisor for the graduate students. In addition, he or she is responsible for overseeing the following matters related to the Law School's graduate students: immigration and visas; fellowship awards; the university's graduate school program; and the New York Bar. Finally, the new Assistant Dean will be responsible for transitioning LL.M and J.S.D. admissions into the Graduate Legal Studies Program office. As a part of this transition, and going forward, the position will require domestic and international travel for meetings and recruitment.


JOB QUALIFICATIONS:  A JD (or equivalent degree) is required and further graduate degree in law is preferred. In addition, the successful applicant must have at least 3 - 5 years of relevant experience. The successful applicant will also have a demonstrated aptitude for working well with a diverse and engaged international student body, as well as with staff and faculty; strong communication and leadership skills; be self-motivated and seek opportunities for learning; be flexible, open and receptive to new ideas and approaches to the program; and show initiative in his or her approach to leadership and program development.


PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: LLM or other graduate degree in law; at least 5-7 years of previous experience in law school administration or student services, plus previous experience with international students and programs; fluency in a second language; and membership in the New York Bar.
