The Vermont Law School Board of Trustees announced today the appointment of Marc Mihaly as VLS’s eighth president and dean, effective August 1:

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

It is my great pleasure to announce that, after an eight-month national search, the Board of Trustees has selected Marc Mihaly as the next president and dean of Vermont Law School, effective August 1, 2012. We are confident that he will provide the vision, strategic leadership, and integrity to guide this institution.

Marc, who joined VLS in 2004, is an inspiring leader who grasps the shifting legal landscape. He comes with tremendous institutional knowledge, enabling VLS to react swiftly and strategically. As a proven entrepreneur, fundraiser, and communicator, he will be well positioned to take advantage of new opportunities.

Marc received his BA degree from Harvard College and his JD degree from Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California, Berkeley. He is spending the 2011-2012 academic year on sabbatical at the University of Seville School of Law, one of the top-ranked universities in Spain.

A news release will be available shortly. I hope you will join me in warmly welcoming our next president and dean.

Best regards,

Edward C. Mattes, Jr. ’83, Chair
Vermont Law School Board of Trustees
