Paul McGreal, the Univerity of Dayton’s new law dean, plans to advance the school’s already innovative program. Here is an excerpt from an article in the National Law Journal:
"What excites me is working on creating institutional incentives and policies that support people doing good work," McGreal said. "This is a law school that's been entrepreneurial in looking at curriculum and the recruitment of students."
McGreal said he was attracted to Dayton because of its reputation for curriculum innovation. The school launched its "Lawyer As Problem Solver" program in 2005, emphasizing practical skills and requiring students to take a course in alternative dispute resolution, an externship and at least one clinical or capstone course based on a practice simulation. Dayton was among the first to launch an accelerated two-year J.D. program.
