Chancellor and Dean’s Office

“We are on the cusp of a revolution that will not simply change the way lawyers practice law, but also what it means to be a lawyer. At UC Hastings, we are prepared for this revolution.”

The Chancellor and Dean’s Office collaborates with campus leaders and UC Hastings stakeholders to guide strategic initiatives and priorities for the School.
