Ian Weinstein Named Associate Dean for Clinical and Experiential ProgramsFebruary 01, 2010
Ian Weinstein, Professor and Director of Clinical Education, has been named to the newly established position of Associate Dean for Clinical and Experiential Programs at Fordham Law. The creation of an associate deanship recognizes the strength and national significance of the Law School's clinical program, which was ranked 12th in the country in the 2010 edition of U.S. News & World Report.
"Fordham Law has one of the top clinical programs in the country," said Dean William Michael Treanor. "Having an Associate Dean for Clinical Education will help ensure that these vital programs are fully integrated into the Law School's planning and governance."
In his new position, Weinstein will continue to oversee the School's 15 clinics—including the new Prosecution Clinic—as well as Fordham's opportunities for experiential learning in field placements and simulation courses.
"I am honored to have been selected for this position," said Weinstein. "The School's clinical program is an important part of a Fordham Law education, and I look forward to helping develop it even more."
Weinstein has directed the clinical program since July 2006. He is also the Founding Director of the Brendan Moore Trial Advocacy Center. He received his J.D. cum laude from NYU and an LL.M. from Georgetown.
"Ian is an extraordinary academic leader and a wonderfully gifted clinician who has already made immeasurable contributions to Fordham Law," added Dean Treanor. "I look forward to working with him as he takes on this new post, and I am grateful to him for his inspiring dedication to the Fordham community and our mission."
