The former dean of the University of Arkansas School of Law will take the reins of the newly established law school at Florida International University. Leonard Strickman, 58, a Yale Law School graduate and veteran legal educator, will begin his tenure next week at what will be South Florida’s first public law school. The school is to open in fall 2002. Strickman, who specializes in constitutional law and education law, served as dean of the Arkansas school, from 1991 to last June. He remained at the school as a professor after stepping down. Strickman served nine years as dean of the Northern Illinois University School of Law, leading that institution through accreditation by the American Bar Association and the Association of American Law Schools. He was on the faculties of law schools at Boston University and Boston College and was a visiting professor at the University of Colorado and the University of California’s Hastings College of the Law. He spent two years as Minority Counsel to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity, and was special counsel to the mayor of Boston during the Boston school desegregation litigation. Strickman is an elected member of the American Law Institute and has served as a member of the Government Relations Committee, Association of American Law Schools; as a member of the Accreditation Committee, American Bar Association; and as a consultant to the U.S. Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare.
