Linda Keller Appointed Associate Dean for Academic Affairs
July 5, 2013
Thomas Jefferson School of Law Dean Thomas Guernsey has announced the appointment of Professor Linda Keller as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
Here is his announcement:
“I am pleased to announce that Linda Keller has agreed to accept the position of Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Please join me in congratulating her. As most of you know, Professor Keller joined the TJSL faculty in the fall of 2003. After graduating from law school, where she was notes editor for the Yale Law Journal, she served as a clerk and supervisor in the Legal Research Office of the Connecticut Judicial Department. She then taught international human rights law and legal writing for four years at the University of Miami School of Law, where she also served as Fellow of the Center for the Study of Human Rights.
“I want to thank the faculty and staff, and especially the screening committee, for the way that the search was conducted so expeditiously. The process involved an incredible amount of work in a very short period of time. There was a wonderful group of candidates, all of whom would have made good deans. The process really has reinforced my impression that we have a great faculty here at Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
“Dean Keller will assume her responsibilities immediately. I know everyone will do their most to make her transition as smooth as possible.”
“I am honored to serve as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs,” said Dean Keller. “I look forward to working with Dean Guernsey and the entire TJSL community as we address the challenges facing law schools with continued innovation and creativity.”
Congratulations Dean Keller from everyone in the TJSL family!
