Paul McGreal Named Dean at Dayton

Paul McGreal, Director of Faculty Development and Professor of Law at Southern Illinois University, has been named the new dean of the University of Dayton School of Law, effective this summer.  McGreal joined the SIU faculty in 2006.  Previously he was on the faculty at the South Texas College of Law.  He received his JD from SMU and his LLM from Yale.  This news, along with Villanova's hiring of John Gotanda (JD, Hawaii), is consistent with my earlier suggestion that decanal search committees take a relatively  ecumenical view toward JD pedigree (at least as compared to faculty appointments committees).
