Here is the university's announcement (not yet on-line):
Jose Roberto (Beto) Juarez Jr. will join the University on July 1st as dean of the Sturm College of Law. An accomplished scholar, lawyer and administrator, he is currently a law professor at St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio. Beto has been at St. Mary's since 1990, where he has served as associate dean for academic and student affairs. In that role, he administered academic programs, developed the law school's budget and was responsible for student affairs. He also supervised the law school staff and chaired the bar examination committee. A well known scholar, Beto has published extensively and presented his work throughout the United States and Mexico. With a host of new faculty members added during the past few years, a new building, the wonderful naming gift from Donald and Susan Sturm and the development of the Nanda Center for International Law supported by a generous gift from Doug and Mary Scrivner, the Sturm College of Law is poised for a major leap forward in quality and stature. Beto Juarez is the right person to lead the college to realization of that goal.
