Nora Demleitner, W&L's new IntLawDean

Pleased to note that our colleague Nora V. Demleitner's been appointed dean at the Washington and Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Virginia. (credit for photo of Nora by Tony Lopez)
An expert in comparative, criminal, and immigration law, Nora, as we've posted, has been serving for several years as dean at New York's Hofstra University School of Law. Effective July 1 of next year, she'll be the 1st woman dean at Washington and Lee, a law school founded 145 years ago. Serving on the dean's search committee was IntLawGrrls' own Johanna E. Bond, a member of the W&L faculty and the author of a post published earlier today.
Born in Germany, Nora earned a bachelor's degree from Bates College in Lewistown, Maine, a law degree from Yale, and a master's in law from Georgetown University Law Center. She clerked for Samuel A. Alito Jr., then federal appellate judge and now, of course, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
Heartfelt congratulations, Nora!
