State Supreme Court Justice Gary Wade, who announced last week that he plans to resign from Tennessee’s highest court in September, has been named the new dean of the John J. Duncan Jr. School of Law at Lincoln Memorial University (LMU). Wade was introduced to the faculty and staff of the law school earlier today at a Southeastern Association of Law Schools conference being held in Boca Raton, Florida, the AOC said. Matthew Lyon, a professor at the Knoxville-based school, is serving as acting dean.
