It has been an incredible five years in the history of the law school. Dean Butler bounded into the administrative suite on June 25, 2015 full of energy, ideas, and ambitious goals, asking us to never settle for “good” and always push for “best.” It would be impossible to enumerate each of the many important contributions that happened under his leadership. We witnessed the transformation of the library and creation of the leadership center, a rise in national and international recognition, the addition of new institutes and clinics, the enrollment of impressive classes, and record- breaking gifts that changed the face of the law school and the University. So much was done for our community in such a short time.
It is not only the students who have benefited from Dean Butler’s motto of “Learn. Challenge. Lead.” As associate deans, we learned, we were challenged, and it has been our sincere privilege to help lead.
Henry, we wish you well as you return to the fourth floor and your position as Professor of Law and the Executive Director of the Law & Economics Center. Onward and Upward!
