Local law school deans: And then there was 1

Today's Strib reports that Hamline University Law School Dean Jon Garon plans to step down from his post at the end of the academic year. Garon, who served as dean for five years, plans to return to the Hamline faculty after a year-long sabbatical.

With four local law schools, three are now without a permanent dean. In addition to Hamline, the University of Minnesota Law School and William Mitchell College of Law are looking for deans. (We blogged about WMCL dean Allen Easley's resignation only a few short weeks ago -- see "Half the state's law schools now in between deans." Unlike Garon's resignation, Easley's was effective immediately.)

The announcement means that only the University of St. Thomas School of Law -- which has Thomas Mengler at its helm -- is now not in dean search mode.

For more on Garon's decision to take a break from deaning, see "Hamline Law School joins U, William Mitchell in search for a dean."
