UF's Levin College of Law appoints first female Dean
Published August 17th, 2015
Twenty-fourth is just not good enough, so the first woman to run the Levin College of Law is making it her mission to improve UF's national ranking.
Laura Rosenbury is the new dean for the 106-year-old college.
Rosenbury, who earned her degree from Harvard Law in 1997, has also been a visiting professor at various law schools across the country.
Rosenbury says she chose UF because of her positive experiences with students and faculty.
"I was really touched by the warmth of the faculty, while still being a very rigorous and analytic place," Rosenbury says, "and the enthusiasm of the students, so they sort of sucked me in. I then had a wonderful meeting with President Fuchs, and I was very much drawn in by his vision for the University as a whole."
Rosenbury succeeds Robert Jerry, who served as the Dean of the Law School for 11 years.
