In this episode, we hear from Dean Hari M. Osofsky, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. Hari M. Osofsky is the Dean and Myra James Bradwell Professor of Law at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, and Professor of Environmental Policy and Culture at the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, positions she has held since summer 2021. Prior to that, she was dean at Penn State Law and Penn State School of International Affairs, serving as a Distinguished Professor of Law, and Professor of International Affairs and of Geography during her four-year tenure at Penn State. Dean Osofsky discusses her reasons for becoming a lawyer and a dean, and for her recent switch to Northwestern during the continuing pandemic. She shares her deep commitment to issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social and racial justice, and the numerous roles she has played in advancing collaborative projects across universities and law schools that can address those issues on a systemic level. Dean Osofsky describes her leadership style, the efforts that have aided in keeping a sense of community and gratitude at two different law schools, and her exploration of the intersection of law and technology and how it might address access to justice. She concludes with her expectations for the evolution of legal education in the coming decade.
