          In accordance with the By-Laws and Standing Orders of the UC Hastings Board of Directors, a Dean Search Committee is organized consisting of four members of the UC Hastings Board of Directors and three members of the UC Hastings Faculty.

          The members of the search committee include:

"It calls for strong, dynamic leadership from a candidate with the vision and skills to propel UC Hastings forward. Our Dean Search Committee is committed to finding that candidate.”

          The search committee welcomes candidates from a variety of backgrounds, including those with experience in legal education administration and other higher education administration, and candidates with senior management experience outside of academia, including the judiciary, government service, and the legal profession.
