A total of 27 (nearly 14%) U.S. American Bar Association-accredited law schools have yet to have a woman dean, including two T14s—Cornell Law School and the University of Michigan Law School.

Michigan Law has been searching for a permanent dean to succeed Mark West, whose term ended on Dec. 31, after he led the law school for 10 years, which is the maximum amount of time the university allows deans to serve. Kyle D. Logue, the Douglas A. Kahn collegiate professor of law, has been serving as interim dean since Jan. 1.
