Deans Corner

Dean Jeffrey Brand

The USF School of Law is gearing up for another exciting year. A new class of approximately 240 first-year law students — chosen from nearly 4,200 applicants—will fill Kendrick Hall in the coming weeks. Many of our continuing students are returning from innovative summer programs and internships in such diverse locales as Bangalore, India; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; and throughout the Southern United States. In addition, many students attended our summer study offerings in Dublin, Prague, and Budapest.

While we welcome our students back and look with anticipation toward the new year, we also remember the legacy of Art Zief ’47, who died July 25 and whose unparalleled support transformed the law school. Art had an unswerving and inspiring belief in how good we are and the potential that we have. As we honor his memory we redouble our efforts to educate skilled, ethical professionals who will help fashion a more humane and just world. That’s exactly what Art would have wanted.
