From Ambulance Chasing Plaintiffs Lawyer to Former State Chief Justice, Saint Louis University Appoints New (and Not Interim) Law Dean
From the March 5, 2013 press release:
Following a national search, the Honorable Michael Wolff has been selected as the new dean for Saint Louis University School of Law, effective immediately. A current SLU LAW faculty member, Wolff brings an established record of leadership to his new role, having served 13 years on the Missouri Supreme Court and as its Chief Justice from 2005-2007.
And presumably less "politically incorrect" than the self-admitted "plain-spoken, ambulance chasing plaintiffs lawyer" interim dean who resigned on March 4th. See Interim SLU law dean says he resigned because of his big mouth; new dean is named by Debra Cassens Weiss (ABAJ News).
Are former interim deans eligible to serve on ABA accreditation site inspection teams? [JH]
