Loyola Law School to welcome new dean

In a message from President Timothy Law Snyder sent out last week, he announced that Professor Michael Waterstone will take on the role of senior vice president and dean at Loyola Law School. Waterstone has taught as a Professor of Law at Loyola Law School since 2006, and also held the position of associate dean for research and academic centers for five years.

Prior to teaching at Loyola, Waterstone taught law at University of Mississippi Law School, the University of Haifa, and Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. Snyder's message explained that "He is an eminent scholar on the civil rights of persons with disabilities and an influential voice in the national disability community."

Waterstone is set to begin his position on June 1. "I look forward to working with Michael as he guides Loyola Law School, and I ask you to join me in congratulating him on his appointment," said Snyder in his message.
