Paul Berman Named New Dean at GWU

by Roger Alford

In the ever-expanding world of international law scholars who become influential deans, George Washington University School of Law announced today that Paul Schiff Berman, Dean at Arizona State, will be the new dean at GWU.

“GW Law School is obviously already one of the top law schools in the country, but it is far more than that,” Mr. Berman said. “It is a place where students and faculty work every day to help change the world: tackling the crucial challenges facing our society and integrating their academic pursuits with law in action in our nation’s capital. This is the unique vision that the GW Law School is poised to pursue as we become the preeminent location for 21st-century global legal and policy studies.”

Laura Dickinson, the other member of this dynamic international law duo, will become Oswald Symister Colclough Research Professor of Law.

Kudos to both!
