Promoting Diversity in Law School Leadership Workshop
William H. Gates Hall

Dear Colleagues:

At this time of challenge and change in legal education, it is ever-more vital that we nurture diverse and effective leaders for our schools and our profession.  In that spirit, I’m pleased to invite you to participate in the Fourth Biennial Workshop Promoting Diversity in Law School Leadership, which will be held at the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle, Washington. This workshop will nurture leadership at all levels for our institutions, whether as an associate dean, dean, or another leadership role within the law school or university. I hope that you can join us!

Promoting Diversity in Law School Leadership

OCTOBER 11 & 12, 2013  



UW School of Law with Seattle University School of Law & 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 attendees:

  • 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.

Current SALT members will benefit from a reduced registration fee for the workshop.  In addition, SALT will provide a limited number of scholarships for faculty members who may not otherwise have access to funding to attend the workshop.  To inquire about a scholarship, please email hhughson@uw.edu.  

Please register online by October 7, 2013.

Program agenda now finalized!

Please note online registration is for credit card payment only.  To make arrangements to pay with an alternative method, please email hhughson@uw.edu or call 206-685-7230.
