Board of Visitors

Board of Visitors, 2013

Supporting Legal Education

The Board of Visitors plays an important role in helping the dean respond to particular challenges facing legal education. The dean appoints members to the board based on their distinction as leaders in law, business and service to the public and their strong commitment to the college.

The board meets regularly during the year to discuss education issues, short-term and long-term plans for the college and ongoing concerns in areas related to admissions and career services, curricular initiatives, faculty research, community engagement and resource needs. The board’s input is critical to maintaining the college’s strong tradition of a balanced curriculum of legal theory and practice in a flexible format.
