Pace Law School of White Plains, N.Y., appointed Michelle S. Simon to be its interim dean, succeeding Stephen J. Friedman, who became Pace’s president on June 4. Simon, an expert on criminal law, civil procedure and legal writing, had been the school’s associate dean of academic affairs. Friedman tapped her to fill his old position with the recommendation of the faculty when he became Pace’s president last week. “The faculty’s enthusiasm for Michelle Simon is a strong confirmation of her breadth in scholarship, teaching and administration, all areas in which she sets high goals and earns the respect of colleagues, students and the profession,” Friedman said in a statement. Simon, a member of the Pace law faculty since 1985 and a full professor since 2003, expressed gratitude for the appointment and said that she intends to continue “Friedman’s course of strengthening Pace Law School’s national reputation.” Simon served as associate dean of academic affairs from 2001 to 2006, directing the school’s judicial studies and legal writing programs. She also sat on 16 committees, chairing a committee on academic standards and another committee conducting a self-study. She clerked for U.S. Magistrate Judge A. Simon Chrein at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and practiced for four years in the areas of products liability litigation and insurance defense as an associate at Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker in New York.
