Berkeley Law appoints new dean
Sujit Choudhry, a renowned expert in comparative constitutional law, has been named dean of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. UC Berkeley Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Claude Steele calls Choudhry a “brilliant scholar, professor, and mentor,” who will inspire and lead with “big ideas” during a time of rapid change in the legal profession. Choudhry’s history and work have an international focus that dovetails closely with the university’s global outlook and scholarship; he holds an LL.B. from the University of Toronto and an LL.M. from Harvard University. He called the Berkeley Law deanship “the opportunity of a lifetime.”
“Berkeley Law is simply a remarkable institution,” Choudhry explains. “It is among the very best law schools in the nation, and is an integral part of one of the world’s great research universities. I am deeply attracted to Berkeley Law’s public mission; it is committed to equality of opportunity, academic excellence, and diversity like no other law school that I know.”
