This message from the office of the Provost at Ole Miss arrived yesterday:
School of Law Announcement
Dean Richard Gershon has informed me that he has decided not to stand for quadrennial review and that his service as Dean of the School of Law will conclude on June 30, 2015. I have asked Professor Deborah Bell to assume the role of Interim Dean of the School of Law for the near future. Dean Gershon and Dean Bell will begin to work out the plans for transition immediately.
Please join me in thanking Dean Gershon for his dedicated service to the School of Law. We are pleased that Dean Gershon will remain with the University as one of our valued faculty colleagues.

Only yesterday I posted about the schedule for this year’s Bell Family Law Seminars.
I know Professor Bell will do a superlative job as interim, and I will keep my fingers crossed that, if she wants it, she will be offered the job as Dean of the School of Law. I can’t think of anyone more capable.
I only hope that this does not sidetrack her in her role as foremost authority on Mississippi family law. If it does, I hope she has a worthy successor.
