Andrew R. Klein has been appointed dean of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
Klein, 50, has served in the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Chancellor’s Cabinet as chief of staff since 2010 and took on additional responsibilities as associate vice chancellor for academic affairs in 2012.
He will be the 12th dean of the McKinney law school since it became part of I.U. in 1944. He is the Paul E. Beam Professor of Law and served as associate dean for academic affairs from 2004 to 2007.
“Andy has made exceptional contributions to both the McKinney School of Law and the development of the IUPUI campus during his tenure and his expertise, leadership and experience make him an outstanding choice as the next dean,” Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie stated in a press release.
He will begin as dean July 1, pending approval of the I.U. board of trustees. Current Dean Gary Roberts is stepping down as dean this year, but will continue to teach.
