Edward Rubin

EDWARD RUBIN, the Theodore K. Warner Jr. Professor of Law, has been appointed dean of Vanderbilt University Law School effective July 1.

A legal scholar of the first rank in the area of public governance, particularly administrative law and legal theory, Rubin joined Penn Law in 1998.

"Ed Rubin will be an exceptional dean," said Michael A. Fitts, dean of Penn Law School and Bernard G. Segal Professor of Law, adding that Rubin has been "a thoughtful commentator over the years on trends in legal scholarship and legal education."

He continued, "We will sorely miss him at Penn not only for his intellect and his wisdom, but his friendship. Vanderbilt is very lucky indeed to have a leader as respected intellectually and personally as Ed Rubin."

Rubin is the author of numerous articles in leading law journals and three books, including the upcoming Beyond Camelot: Rethinking Politics and Law for the Modern State and Federalism: A Theoretical Inquiry, which he co-authored with Malcolm Feeley.

He has also served as chair of the Association of American Law Schools’ sections on socio-economics and scholarship and on its curriculum and research, professional development and nominations committees. And, he has been a consultant to the Asia Foundation Project on the Administrative Licensing Law for the People’s Republic of China, the Russian Privatization Center and to the United Nations Development Programme.
