— Michael Hunter Schwartz has been named the new dean of the William H. Bowen School of Law, University of Arkansas at Little Rock Provost Zulma Toro announced Tuesday.

Schwartz of Lawrence, Kan., is an associate dean for faculty and academic development, the co-director of the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning, and a professor at the Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kan.

He will begin at the Bowen School on July 1, succeeding Paula Casey, who has served as interim dean since last July, the university said in a statement.

His salary has been set at $230,000, UALR said.

“He brings a number of innovative ideas about legal education to the table, and his experience as an organizer of the first conference on Humanizing Legal Education at Washburn Law School will certainly help improve our already strong focus on student-centered legal education,” Casey said in the statement.

Schwartz, who holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from the University of California at Berkeley and a law degree from the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, previously taught at the Charleston School of Law in South Carolina and at Western State University College of Law in Fullerton, Calif., according to UALR.

“This is a very exciting time for the UALR Bowen School,” Toro said. “The fact that we have been able to hire a nationally and internationally recognized leader in legal education will bring many opportunities for the law school to reach an even higher academic level.”
