Nell Newton, Dean of the University of California Hastings College of Law since 2006, will step down this summer and become Dean of the Notre Dame Law School. Newton was previously Dean at the University of Connecticut School of Law before her move to Hastings.
UPDATE: The Notre Dame news release is now up. Notre Dame has been one of "the most improved" law schools in terms of faculty quality over the last decade or so, so hopefully Dean Newton will continue that positive trajectory.
