Board of Visitors

    The Board of Visitors are distinguished alumni and friends who advise the Dean on topics ranging from proposals for new academic programs to the hiring of senior administrators to state and local political issues affecting the law school. Members of the Board also seek to advise the Maryland General Assembly, the Board of Regents, the University System of Maryland Chancellor and the University of Maryland Baltimore President on matters affecting the Law School.

    The Board contributes substantially to development and alumni relations, and we are grateful for their generosity. The members of the Board of Visitors for the academic year 2014-2015 are:
