The University of Miami has fired law Dean Anthony Varona, a decision that has riled the law school’s faculty and outraged many of Varona’s fellow law deans across the country.

Frenk’s letter said Varona would remain on the faculty. Varona came to the law school in 2019 after 14 years on the faculty at American University Washington College of Law.
