CUNY Law Dean Search

The Board of Trustees of The City University of New York (CUNY) and the CUNY School of Law Dean Search Committee invite nominations and applications for the position of Dean of CUNY School of Law.

Founded in 1983, CUNY School of Law is committed to enhancing the diversity of the legal profession and graduating outstanding attorneys intent on creating positive change in the world. CUNY Law prepares lawyers “who are ready to right the wrongs, stand up for the underserved and fight for social justice.”

The Law School consistently ranks among the top 10 law schools in the country for clinical training and has been a model for other law schools for its clinical practice. CUNY Law pioneered the model of integrating a lawyering curriculum with traditional legal education, giving students hands-on practical clinical experience throughout their three years of study.

The Law School enrolls an exceptionally diverse student body. Among our 2015 entering class, approximately 52 percent are students of color. It is a three-time recipient of the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine (2013, 2014 and 2015). In addition, The Princeton Review has ranked CUNY Law as having the seventh most diverse law faculty in the nation.

The Law School offers full-time day and part-time evening programs leading to the degree of juris doctor. Our 10-to-1, student-to-faculty ratio allows faculty to provide instruction, guidance and support so students understand and succeed in their legal education.
