Professor Gilbert Holmes, who previously served as the dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law has been named the new leader of the University of LaVerne College of Law. He takes over this summer. Holmes holds a JD from NYU and was also a member of the faculties at Texas Wesleyan, Seton Hall and SMU. He was dean at Baltimore for seven years, from 2001-07.
LaVerne currently has provisional ABA accreditation; Holmes seems like a very solid hire for the law school because he will add credibility to the institution in its dealings with the ABA.
