In today's episode, we welcome Laura A. Rosenbury. She is the Dean and Levin, Mabie & Levin Professor of Law at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, a position she has held since July 2015. Dean Rosenbury shares the remarkable progress Levin College of Law is making, including a 200% increase in applications, 31 new faculty members, fundraising exceeding $100 million in private funds, and having six of the most accomplished and diverse classes in the law school's 113-year history within the past seven years. Dean Rosenbury shares some of the quick changes she and her team made to generate more applications, improve contacts with employers, and increase alumni outreach. She also explains how outreach to over 1000 alumni led to their $100 million in funds, through both large and small gifts. All of the successes since 2016 have meant a jump for the Levin College of Law of 27 spots in the U.S. News rankings, placing them among the top 25 law schools in the nation. Dean Rosenbury predicts increased use of the internet to accelerate connections globally, and utilizing zoom to expose students to the diversity of legal practice, as likely to be part of the future of legal education.
