Initial Set of Finalists for University of Washington Dean Search Announced

Here; they are Mary Anne Bobinski, currently Dean of the law faculty at the University of British Columbia; Gregory Hicks, currently Interim Dean at Washington; Steven Willborn, currently Dean of the Law School at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln; and Lawrence Zelenak, a law professor and tax scholar at Duke.  It's fair to say that the University of Washington School of Law has been one of the underperforming units at UW, which is otherwise one of the nation's leading state research universities (albeit one that is chronically underfunded), with many top ten and top twenty units.  The law school has done notable junior hiring in recent years, making it more of a recruitment target for other schools than it had been for awhile.  A new Dean will need to build on that momentum.
