Thrilling News: Phoebe Haddon Will Be Maryland Law’s New Dean


I am so proud, and thrilled, to share with our CoOp community that distinguished scholar and faculty member of Temple University Beasley School of Law Phoebe Haddon will be the University of Maryland School of Law’s ninth Dean, following the wonderful ten-year deanship of Karen H. Rothenberg. Phoebe Haddon is a widely respected, national leader in legal education and an expert in jury participation, the courts, and diversity. Dr. David Ramsay, the President of University of Maryland, Baltimore, remarked that: “Phoebe Haddon is passionate about legal education, about the essential role of innovative and influential scholarship in the continued development of our faculty, and about the School of Law’s vital public service mission.” This is thrilling news for the Maryland faculty, its students, alumni, and our wider legal community.

    Congratulations to Phoebe and Maryland. Temple will miss you!!

  3. She’s an expert in “diversity”? Does this mean we can now expect a greater outreach to prospective students and faculty to include those who perhaps DIDN’T vote for President Obama…or do I not understand modern-day diversity concerns?
