Loyola University Chicago, United States – Dean
Loyola University Chicago, the nation’s largest Jesuit, Catholic university with an enrollment of over 16,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, invites applications and nominations for the position of Dean of the School of Law.
Long recognized as an innovative leader, Loyola University Chicago School of Law has positioned itself at the forefront of legal education today, committed to preparing a diverse student body to excel in meeting the challenges of today’s rapidly changing legal profession, while also building the foundation for extraordinary lives of professional growth and service. The School of Law fully embraces the Jesuit educational heritage, welcoming students and faculty of all faith traditions, and emphasizing academic and intellectual excellence, ethical values, and an active commitment to social justice. The School of Law takes seriously the Ignation injunction to “go forth and set the world on fire,” and therefore views the law, not solely as a rigorous academic discipline, at which it aims to excel both in teaching and research, but also as a force for serving others and positively changing society. That mission is reflected in all of its efforts—inside and outside the classroom.
With its unparalleled commitments to intellectual and professional excellence, social justice, student-centered learning, and pedagogical innovation – both in its traditional full-time and groundbreaking Weekend JD programs and in its many certificate and degree programs for those not seeking a JD degree – Loyola has become an exemplar for legal education in the twenty-first century. The School of Law’s expanded international curriculum and study-abroad programs provide solid preparation for the increasingly global practice of law, and its nationally recognized Centers of Excellence bring together transformative teaching, research, service, and public policy initiatives in advocacy, business law, child and family law, health law, and other specialty areas in which Loyola leads. The School of Law’s accomplishments and recognitions reflect the strength of its momentum in pedagogy and curricular reform, scholarship, diversity and inclusion, community service, the pursuit of justice on behalf of the underrepresented and marginalized, and the strengthening of the rule of law on a global scale.

The Dean of Loyola University Chicago School of Law will be a creative, dynamic, and ambitious leader with a track record of distinguished accomplishments. This person will possess a real commitment to diversity and inclusion and a genuine understanding and appreciation of the Jesuit Catholic mission and tradition and its commitment to intellectual and moral excellence and social justice. The successful candidate will also possess the personal and managerial skills necessary to attract and retain financial and human resources, as well as a deep commitment to innovation in legal education, student success, faculty development and scholarship, and collegial leadership. The successful candidate will have a sophisticated understanding of the changing landscape of legal education and a vision for the School of Law’s role in the future of legal education.
The successful candidate will, at minimum, possess a J.D. degree and will have an outstanding record of accomplishment in the legal academy, the practice of law, or the judiciary, demonstrating a level of intellectual accomplishment and leadership warranting appointment at the rank of Professor of Law. He or she will be a successful teacher or mentor, will excel at scholarship and research, will be a proven manager or administrator, and will have a demonstrated commitment to public service.
