DiPippa to head UALR Law

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2009 at 9:11 AM

A national search failed to produce a new UALR dean when a deal couldn't be struck with the final candidate, but the problem has been solved at home.

John DiPippa, a UALR faculty member who has been interim dean, will take the job permanently (or at least for a two-year period), it was announced today.

Public radio listeners probably know John as a contributor of on-air commentary. Of the sort that seems to rankle the DOG editorialists. Great news.

DiPippa Named Dean of the William H. Bowen School of Law
It is my pleasure to announce the selection of John DiPippa as the eighth dean of the William H. Bowen School of Law. As you know, John has served as interim dean since July 2008 following the resignation of Dean Charles Goldner who wanted to return to teaching at the Bowen School.
John’s appointment as dean begins immediately and runs through June 30, 2011. We are quite fortunate to have someone of John’s caliber to assume the school’s deanship. He brings to this leadership role a demonstrated commitment to excellence in legal education and garners respect and strong support both within the legal community and among the Bowen School’s faculty and staff.  I am very pleased that John has accepted this appointment and anticipate that the law school will flourish under his leadership.

Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
