Kansas University’s law dean is one of five finalists for a similar position at the University of Iowa.
Gail B. Agrawal has been the dean of KU’s law school since 2006, when she arrived from the University of North Carolina.
If Agrawal were to leave, it would create the third vacant dean position on the KU campus, as university officials are already seeking a dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and a dean of the School of Music.
The other four finalists for the position include Gregory Mark, a professor of law and associate dean for institutional planning at Rutgers Law School; Nicholas W. Allard, partner and co-chair of the public policy and administrative law department at Patton Boggs, LLP, in Washington; Vikram Amar, professor of law and associate dean for academic affairs at the University of California, Davis, School of Law; and Linda Greene, Evjue-Bascom professor of law at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The last of the finalist interviews for the position were scheduled for Tuesday.
Iowa’s law school ranked 26th in the most recent U.S. News and World Report rankings. KU’s is ranked 65th.
