Kansas University’s third candidate for its vacant law dean position is the school’s interim dean.
Stephen W. Mazza has been serving as the interim dean since June 2010, when Gail Agrawal left to become dean at the University of Iowa.
He will meet with faculty, staff and students in a public forum at 3:45 p.m. Monday at 104 Green Hall.
Mazza joins Jeffrey Lipshaw, associate professor of law at Suffolk Law School in Boston, and Beverly Moran, professor of law and professor of sociology at Vanderbilt Law School, as finalists for the position.
Chris Drahozal, chairman of KU’s law dean search committee, said that although the search remains open until the post is filled, he doesn’t anticipate announcing any more finalists. He said the final decision would likely be in the hands of the provost by spring break.
Mazza is also one of five announced finalists for the position of dean at the University of South Carolina School of Law.
