Columbia University has announced that:
Columbia University President Lee C. Bollingertoday announced his appointment of Gillian Lester, professor and acting dean of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, as the fifteenth dean of Columbia Law School, effective January 1, 2015. ...
“I’m honored to take on the leadership of Columbia Law School at this pivotal time,” said Lester. “I’m looking forward to working with its distinguished faculty, talented students and accomplished alumni. Indeed, I’m looking forward to joining the broader Columbia community and ensuring that the Law School continues to play an essential role in this truly great University.”
Setting aside the fact that this is yet another example of how Canadians are taking good US jobs, both Gillian and Columbia are to be congratulated. They should make a great match.
