Southwestern Law Dean Bryant Garth to Step Down


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Southwestern Law School Dean Bryant Garth is stepping down after seven years in the post, the school said late yesterday.

He said in a statement:

 “Southwestern is an inspiring, vibrant, collaborative community of dedicated legal scholars and students with an exceptionally dedicated staff.  I feel very privileged to have served as dean during this momentous time in the law school’s history. My years here have been some of the most satisfying and exciting of my career, and I want to thank all the members of the Southwestern family for so enthusiastically embracing and contributing to our commitment to excellence and innovation.”

He explained that he has had the desire to return full-time to his research and scholarship, and his decision to step down at this time reflected his confidence that “Southwestern is in very solid shape and on a nice trajectory, with an excellent, committed faculty and staff and exciting new developments in the academic program, campus expansion, and institutional partnerships.”

He will take a year’s sabbatical commencing in July, he said.
