WASHINGTON — International law scholar Janet Koven Levit has been named dean of the University of Tulsa College of Law. Levit, who has served as interim dean since Oct. 10, 2007, becomes the first female dean in the college’s history as well as the first dean drawn from among the college’s faculty since the 1960s. Tulsa University President Steadman Upham said the leadership Levit has provided as interim dean made the decision to elevate her status an easy one. “In a relatively short time, Janet Levit has guided the law school to impressive successes and through significant milestones,” Upham said. “Dean Levit brings to her new appointment many distinguished qualities including leadership, scholarship and a focus on outreach that will play crucial roles in advancing TU’s reputation among the nation¹s law schools. We are excited by the potential the college has under her stewardship.” During her tenure as interim dean, the law school produced a class of TU law students who had the state’s highest passage rates during the February 2008 bar exam; earned national recognition for several students who were honored by such groups as the American Bar Association and Phi Delta Phi; built strong relationships with business and industry partners that will provide unique scholarship opportunities for law students; and recruited an incoming class that has the strongest academic profile in the college¹s history. Levit is an internationally recognized scholar in international law, publishing extensively in the areas of international commercial law, international human rights and international trade and finance. She earned her law degree in 1994 from Yale Law School, a master’s degree in international relations from Yale University Graduate School also in 1994, and a bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, in 1990 from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University (with a concentration in Latin American Studies). Levit said her goals for the law school are to continue the trends she began as interim dean, in particular setting the college apart from other regional law schools by offering top-tier students a law school experience that is excellent in all respects and by building upon TU¹s strengths in energy law, Native American law and international law.
