Lyrissa Lidsky, the first woman dean of the University of Missouri School of Law, is returning home to the University of Florida Levin College of Law—where she taught for 22 years—as Raymond & Miriam Ehrlich Chair in U.S. Constitutional Law starting in August 2022.

Mizzou Law announced last month that Lidsky would be stepping down as dean effective July 4. Paul Litton, associate dean for faculty research and R.B. Price Professor of Law, will serve as interim dean of Mizzou Law.
