Learn more about Michael Scharf, Co-Dean since 2013, Joseph C. Hostetler and BakerHostetler Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and Managing Director of the Public International Law and Policy Group, a Nobel Peace Prize-nominated NGO. Dean Scharf utilizes his international law expertise to help grow and manage Case Western's foreign legal studies program, which includes robust LLM and SJD enrollment annually. Dean Scharf explains the ways that the international students in these programs enrich the experience of the JD students and actively engage with the law faculty, and the benefits that the Case Western degrees provide for the international graduates, who stay closely connected to the law school after graduation. He shares suggestions for other law schools seeking to maximize their success in starting and maintaining similar programs, and the significant benefits of doing so. Dean Scharf is also a convincing advocate for the leadership model of co-deans!
