Chemerinsky Named Law Dean at UC Berkeley

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 18, 2017

Erwin Chemerinsky will be the next dean of the University of California, Berkeley School of Law.

The school announced Wednesday that Chemerinsky, a preeminent constitutional law expert and founding dean of the University of California, Irvine School of Law, will assume the deanship on July 1 for a five-year term.

He replaces Interim Dean Melissa Murray, who took that position in March 2016 after former dean Sujit Choudhry stepped down amid a sexual harassment scandal.

“I feel so incredibly fortunate,” Chemerinsky said in an interview Wednesday. “I’ve had the most blessed career. Being at Irvine has been an amazing experience, and this is a wonderful new opportunity. Berkeley is a terrific law school and a great campus. I’m very committed to the public service mission of the University of California.”
