Welcome to Rosenblatt's Deans Database (RDD) at law.mc.edu/deans. This website provides information about law school deans. Ever wondered who is the longest serving dean? Which current dean has held the most deanships? What schools a dean attended? Who were the former deans at a particular law school?  What deans do after they leave their deanship?  What is the ethnic/gender composition of law school deans?

The RDD is designed to answer these questions and provide information to those who take an interest in law school deanships. This database may be used by law deans, dean search committees, university officials, or members of the public and is available without charge.

An attractive feature of the RDD is that it is always current. Unlike printed lists of deans that go out of date when changes occur, the RDD is updated instantly whenever information is inputted to the database.  
 
My law school—the Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, Mississippi—hosts the RDD. Our IT Director developed the architecture for the RDD and provided the web design and Joel Firestone of GNet Consulting revised the software code and updated the site. 
 
Please send any updated information for your law school or law school dean to me at Rosenbla@mc.edu.
 
I hope you find the RDD helpful and useful.
