Dean, School of Law

The University of Colorado Boulder encourages applications for the position of Dean of the Law School. The Dean is the Law School’s chief academic and administrative officer, providing thoughtful and equitable leadership, strategic planning, and management of a nationally renowned academic program.

The Dean serves two equally important roles on the Boulder campus. First, the Dean is the principal advocate for the Law School both within and outside the university. Second, as a member of the Provost’s campus academic leadership team, the Dean works collaboratively with other administrators and academic leaders to advance the goals and mission of the CU Boulder campus overall. This leader must be committed to: excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service; providing collaborative leadership both within and outside the school; valuing and encouraging the contributions of a wide variety of individuals and programs; recruiting and retaining outstanding faculty, students, and staff; supporting academic freedom and the principles of diversity, inclusiveness, equity, and accessibility; and engaging in significant fundraising. The Dean must always act in furtherance of CU Boulder’s values of integrity, respect, inclusiveness, and openness.

Colorado Law’s offerings include the nationally recognized juris doctor program, legal clinics and other robust experiential learning opportunities, research centers, student-run journals, dual-degree programs, master’s programs, and certificate programs. It enrolls approximately 525 students and employs approximately 70 full-time faculty and 65 staff.
