University Provost Looks Forward to Teaching at Penn Law School
1 - 2
Ronald Daniels, the new provost of the University
of Pennsylvania and well-regarded former dean of the University of Toronto’s
School of Law, has joined Penn Law’s faculty, bringing a solid record
of public policy scholarship in areas such as law and international development.
“The strength of the law school and the opportunity to one day return
to the faculty as a full-time professor was one of the very considerable
attractions of being appointed provost at Penn,” said Daniels. “Penn’s
Law School is outstanding, and enjoying considerable momentum under the
inspired leadership of Dean Mike Fitts.”
As the dean of Toronto’s School of Law for the last 10 years, Daniels
doubled the size of the faculty, instituted pro bono programs that were
adopted at all Canadian law schools and by Canada’s legal profession,
and developed new programs in international and comparative law.
