William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minn., has selected its interim president and dean, Eric S. Janus, for the permanent position. Janus has served as interim president and dean since August and has been a faculty member since 1984. He served as vice dean from 2004 to August 2007 and as director of the clinical program from 1984 to 1989. Prior to joining the faculty, Janus was a staff lawyer and managing attorney for the Minneapolis Legal Aid Society. He is the author of numerous books and publications, including “Failure to Protect: America’s Sexual Predator Laws and the Rise of the Preventative State,” published last year by Cornell University Press. His accomplishments include getting the David Graven Award for Public Service from the Minnesota State Bar Association in 2000. Janus received his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1973 and his undergraduate degree from Carleton College in Northfield, Minn. He became interim dean after Allen Easley announced in August he was leaving for personal reasons. The law school then put together an 11-member search committee, which was led by Mary Cullen Yeager, vice chairwoman of the law school’s board of trustees and a partner at Minneapolis’ Feagre & Benson. Janus’ appointment now leaves two out of Minnesota’s four law schools still searching for deans. Hamline University School of Law Dean Jon M. Garon is stepping down in July 2008, while University of Minnesota Law School has had two co-deans since April 2006, when its last dean stepped down after four years.
