Washington-St. Louis: Peter Joy Named New Vice Dean
Dean Kent Syverud has announced several law school administrative changes for 2009-10:
On January 1, 2010, Peter Joy, professor of law and former director of the Trial and Advocacy Program, will become the new Vice Dean. Joy has been a leader nationally in addressing curriculum development in legal education, including serving as a member of the Accreditation Committee of the ABA’s Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, former Chair of the Clinical Section of the Association of American Law Schools, and past President of the Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA). Joy also has served as director of the law school’s Criminal Justice Clinic and is well known for his teaching and scholarship in clinical legal education, legal ethics, and trial practice.
“Peter is extraordinarily well positioned by accomplishments, training, talent, and temperament to help lead our school through the challenges ahead,” Syverud said. “In light of dramatic current changes in the practice of law, his background in curriculum development will be a major asset as we focus on this area in the coming year.”
