New deans at USD, Saint Louis and Wisconsin

Three more law schools are headed by new deans starting this month, including one businessman, and one M.D.

Saint Louis University School of Law welcomed Annette Clark to the position of dean at the law school, to begin July 1. Clark will leave Seattle University School of Law, where she has served for over twenty years as a faculty member, interim dean, associate dean, and vice dean. She will take over for Sandra H. Johnson, who has been interim dean since last spring when Dean Jeffrey E. Lewis announced he would return to the classroom following eleven years as dean. Clark holds an M.D. from University of Washington School of Medicine and J.D. from Seattle University School of Law.
The University of San Diego School of Law’s new dean will be Stephen C. Ferruolo, the school recently announced. Ferruolo will replace outgoing dean Kevin Cole, who headed the law school for six years and will now return to his role as a professor at USD. Before joining USD, Ferruolo was vice chairman and general counsel of BIOCOM/San Diego, founding partner and chair of the San Diego office of Goodwin Procter, LLP, a partner at Heller Ehrman, LLP in Palo Alto and San Diego, and served on faculties at Bennington College and Stanford University. Ferruolo graduated from Wesleyan University, was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, earned a PhD in history at Princeton, and holds a J.D. from Stanford University Law School.

The University of Wisconsin Law School announced Margaret Raymond has taken on the position of dean, beginning July 1. Raymond’s predecessor, Kenneth Davis, will step down after 14 years as dean and return to the classroom to teach. Raymond’s experience includes her work as a professor at the University of Iowa since 1995, where she was president of the University Faculty Senate. She also served as a clerk on the Second Circuit and to the late Justice Marshall on the U.S. Supreme Court before moving to private practice in commercial litigation and criminal defense. Raymond holds a bachelor’s degree from Carleton College and a J.D. from Columbia University School of Law.
