Maurer taps faculty and alumni to serve on dean search committee

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

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.

  1. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
