Dean Search

The University of St. Thomas School of Law invites applications and nominations for the position of Dean of the School of Law.  The law school, now in its second decade of operations, seeks to pursue its vision for the future, building on its remarkable success during the deanship of Tom Mengler, who has just announced his departure after 10 years.  UST Law’s mission statement dedicates it, as a Catholic law school, to “integrat[ing] faith and reason in the search for truth through a focus on morality and social justice.”  The school pursues excellence in professional preparation, scholarly engagement and societal reform, and service and community.

This site provides information on the dean position, the law school, the search committee, and developments in the search.
