Indiana University Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel has announced the members of the search and screening committee to identify finalists for the position of dean of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.
The 17-member committee, which includes law school faculty and alumni, will conduct a national search to identify a potential successor for Robel, who stepped down from the leadership post to become provost and executive vice president at Indiana University Bloomington. Currently, Hannah L. Buxbaum is serving as interim dean.
Patricia McDougall-Covin, the William L. Haeberle Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Kelley School of Business, will chair the committee.
Other members are law school faculty Amy Applegate, Kevin Brown, Linda Fariss, Joseph Hoffmann, Mark Janis, Jay Krishnan, Ajay Mehrotra, Christiana Ochoa, Jeffrey Stake, and Deborah Widiss; Assistant Dean of Alumni Relations Andrea Havill and Assistant Dean of Development Dean Regenovich; and law student Kellie Rockel.
Also serving are alumni Michael Flannery, chair, Maurer School Board of Visitors; Lisa McKinney, former president, Maurer School Alumni Board; and Judge John Tinder, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.
The committee will begin meeting this fall with a goal of selecting candidates by next spring. The new dean’s tenure will likely begin with the 2013-2014 academic year.
McKinney School of Law has already named its search committee to identify possible candidates to replace Dean Gary Roberts, who will retire at the end of this school year.
