Outgoing Maryland Law Dean Phoebe Haddon was named the new Chancellor of Rutgers-Camden today. Haddon has served as dean at Maryland since 2009. She was previously on the Temple Law faculty. Haddon takes the place of Chancellor Wendell Pritchett who is stepping down, returning to Penn Law, and becoming Penn's interim law dean.
Rutgers University apparently likes having law professors lead the Camden campus. Pritchett's predecessor was Roger Dennis, the former Rutgers Camden Law dean and our current (and inaugural) dean at Drexel Law.
