Law School Deans Database

OfficeJim Rosenblatt, Dean of Mississippi College of Law, has launched a very helpful Law School Deans Database:

Welcome to Rosenblatt's Deans Database (RDD)
This site provides information about law school deans. Ever wondered who is the longest serving dean? Which current dean has held the most deanships? How many deans were former law professors or judges? What schools a dean attended? Who were the former deans at a particular law school?

The RDD is designed to answer these questions and to provide information to those who take an interest in law school deanships. This database may be used by dean search committees, university officials, or members of the public and is available without charge.

An exciting feature of the RDD is that it is always current. Unlike printed lists of deans that go out of date quickly when changes occur, the RDD can be updated by individual law schools the instant a change occurs. These updates are immediately shown on the RDD. ...

Law schools are encouraged to review their entries and keep them up to date. Only the dean of a law school or the dean’s designee can enter or modify information about that dean or that law school. Each law school has a distinct password that allows them entry and protects their information.
