Law professor Melissa Murray has been named interim dean of the UC Berkeley School of Law. Her appointment, which begins today, was decided with broad input from Berkeley Law faculty, students and staff following the March 10 resignation of former Dean Sujit Choudhry.
“Melissa Murray is a widely respected scholar and teacher, as renowned for the quality of her scholarship as her engagement with students,” said Chancellor Nicholas Dirks. “She will provide excellent leadership at Berkeley Law as we search for a permanent dean, and we will provide her with every form of support.”
