First candidate in new dean search for KU law school to visit campus this week

March 1, 2011


A dean candidate for Kansas University’s School of Law is scheduled to visit campus this week.

Jeffrey M. Lipshaw, associate professor of law at Suffolk University Law School in Boston, will meet with faculty, students and staff in a public forum at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in 104 Green Hall.

Lipshaw has taught at various law schools since 2005. Before that, he served as general counsel at Michigan-based AlliedSignal Inc. and Indianapolis-based Great Lakes Chemical Corp.

This is the first announced candidate for the school in its second attempt at finding a law dean. KU reopened the search for a new dean in January, after one of the four announced finalists took another job at the University of Oregon.

Other candidates’ names will be released about 48 hours before they arrive on campus. Information on candidates, including curriculum vitae, will be available on the provost’s website.

This candidate appears to be very underwhelming. I have never heard of Suffolk University. He isn't even the dean, he is an associate professor. If this is the type of candidate that we are able to attract, there is something seriously wrong with the law school. Keep swinging for the fences, KU.
