Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law has named longtime professor Kimberly Yuracko as its next dean.

On Sept. 1 Yuracko will become the first woman to lead the Chicago law school, replacing outgoing dean Daniel Rodriguez. She joined the faculty in 2002 and has held various administrative roles, including interim dean in 2011. Yuracko is an expert in employment law, gender equity, and anti-discrimination law, and has written several books. We caught up with Yuracko to discuss her goals for the law school, the rise of women leading top law schools, and what she learned during her previous stint running the law school. Her answers have been edited for length and clarity.
