2nd Biennial Promoting Diversity in Law school Leadership
A joint project of Seattle University School of Law and the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT)
September 25 - 26, 2009
Seattle University School of Law through its Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality, and the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT), offer this biennial workshop to encourage and assist members of underrepresented groups to pursue deanships and other university and law school leadership positions. The workshop will help you
- Determine whether you want to be a dean and find the right time and place to pursue a deanship;
- Understand the nuts and bolts of the dean's role;
- Prepare yourself to be a successful dean candidate;
- Learn how to negotiate the terms of your appointment and ensure a successful transition to the decanal role;
- Determine what other forms of university and law school leadership roles may be right for you.
In addition to the substantive program, there will be considerable one-on-one consultation that will create ongoing mentoring and advisory relationships.
This workshop is suggested not only for those considering deaning, but also for those who are planning an upcoming dean search and for those who work closely with the dean, including associate deans.
