Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis has hired a new assistant dean for student affairs, the school announced Monday afternoon.

In his new role, Johnny D. Pryor advises students on academic and personal issues. He is a member of the law school administrative team and provides leadership for the Office of Student Affairs. He oversees academic advising, registration and records, state bar eligibility, student organizations, and other areas affecting the law student experience.

Since 2005, Pryor has helped hundreds of undergraduate students gain admission to some of the most selective law and graduate programs in the world. He served as director of post-graduate studies at Butler University, then he worked as senior assistant director of career services at Dartmouth College before joining the Indianapolis law school’s staff.

He has also served as a member of the steering committee of the Shortridge Magnet High School for Law and Public Policy in Indianapolis, a pipeline program for high school students with an interest in ultimately having careers in the legal profession.

After Pryor graduated from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2002, he served as an assistant Clark County prosecutor in Springfield, Ohio. He worked primarily in the civil division providing legal counsel to county boards, departments, and elected officials on areas of law such as employment, real estate, zoning, and contracts. In addition, he handled criminal matters ranging from adult felony cases to juvenile matters.

While in Springfield, Pryor taught law, literature, and critical reasoning as an adjunct instructor at his alma mater, Wittenberg University. He also served as a volunteer coach for the school’s first undergraduate mock trial team.

As a law student, Pryor served as a clerk to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Washington, D.C., competed as a member of the Indiana University National Trial Competition team, and was later elected to the Order of Barristers.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
