Chris Guthrie has been reappointed to a five-year term as dean of the Vanderbilt Law School. He will begin his third term on July 1, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Susan R. Wente announced last week. “During Dean Guthrie’s leadership, the Law School has made significant gains on strategic priorities, including the creation of new endowed scholarships; the expansion and diversification of the faculty; and the launching of new programs in social justice, law and finance, and law and innovation,” Wente said. Guthrie joined the faculty in 2002, served as associate dean for academic affairs under both of his predecessors and was named dean in 2009.
