GW Law School names interim dean

The University announced Gregory Maggs will serve as the interim dean of the GW Law School Monday.

Maggs takes on the role as Dean Frederick Lawrence leaves the Univeristy to assume the presidency of Brandeis University.

Currently the law school’s senior associate dean for academic affairs, Maggs’ is also the co-director of the National Security and U.S. Foreign Relations Law Program.

“Greg Maggs has long been known in our community as a leader and an outstanding scholar,” Tom Morrison, senior associate dean for administrative affairs, said in a news release. “We are fortunate to have him guiding us during this time of transition, and I have no doubt that he will use this time to improve all areas of operation within the Law School.”

A search for Lawrence’s successor – spearheaded by Roger Trangsrud – is underway, but University officials were quiet when Lawrence announced his new job about when they hoped to fill the role.

It is common for universities to be sparse with details during searches to protect candidates who may be serving in other positions from publicity.

“This deanship will be one of the most coveted opportunities in higher education this year,” Trangsrud said in a news release. “GW Law School is one of the most attractive law schools in the country in which to be dean. My mailbox is filling up. It’s going to be an exciting year.”
