Northern Kentucky University has tapped veteran Willamette University College of Law faculty member Jeffrey Standen as the next dean of the Salmon P. Chase College of Law.

Standen, who has taught at Willamette since 1990 and is associate dean for faculty, will assume the Chase deanship on July 1. He will replace Dennis Honabach, who announced his departure last fall after seven years in the position.

"[University President Geoffrey Mearns] and I are confident that Jeffrey has the experience, vision and demonstrated leadership capacity to be an extraordinary dean who will build upon the strong foundation of excellence in the Chase College of Law," university provost Gail Wells said.

During his tenure at Willamette, Standen helped to establish an LL.M. program, oversaw the move to electronic evaluations, helped to create a part-time program and oversaw summer school.

"I am honored to be selected by NKU to lead the Chase College of Law and I very much look forward to working with the faculty, administration and alumni to ensure that our students receive a world-class, practice-ready education that prepares them for every success," Standen said. "Chase has a long and storied tradition and an even brighter future, and I look forward to contributing to the substantial accomplishments of my predecessors."

Standen teaches evidence, remedies, gambling law and sports law, and has published three books in recent years. Before joining the Willamette faculty, Standen was deputy general counsel for the U.S. Sentencing Commission and an associate at Hunton & Williams.
