University of Georgia School of Law Dean David E. Shipley will leave his post on June 30 to join the law school’s teaching faculty. Shipley, who has served as UGA’s law dean since 1998, plans to teach an administrative law, copyright or intellectual property survey course, he said. Rebecca H. White, a law professor who has been serving as associate provost, will become interim law dean on July 1. UGA Provost Arnett C. Mace said the university won’t initiate a dean search immediately. It already is seeking a dean for the forestry school and expects to conduct two more searches in the fall, he said. Shipley came to UGA from the University of Kentucky, where he spent five years as law dean. Previously, he served for three years as dean of the University of Mississippi’s law school, and he spent 13 years on the law faculty of the University of South Carolina. “I still enjoy many aspects of being dean, such as working with our superb students and getting to know many of our loyal alumni, but I would like to teach more than one seminar each year and start writing law review articles again,” Shipley said in a statement. The school’s soon-to-be interim dean, White, holds the law school’s J. Alton Hosch professorship and specializes in labor and employment law. She has worked in the provost’s office for about seven months, serving as associate provost and associate vice president for academic affairs on an interim basis until the appointments became permanent earlier this year.
