Three faculty members at the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law at Arizona State University were promoted to associate deans by Dean Douglas Sylvester, effective July 1.
The positions will help advance the law school’s upward trajectory in teaching scholarship, research and new projects, said Janie Magruder, a spokeswoman for the college.
Professor Adam Chodorow, who has been a part of the faculty since 2004, was appointed Associate Dean of Innovative Ventures, which will focus on the launch of new programs at the school. His first project will be to create a law-school affiliated, non-profit law firm modeled loosely on medical residency programs.
Mary Sigler, a professor at ASU since 2003, will become Associate Dean for Faculty, a new position that assists the administration in directing faculty research grants, conference planning and travel requests.
Joining ASU in 2010, Professor Zachary Kramer will be the Associate Dean for Intellectual Life and will oversee junior faculty mentoring, retreats and media.
