Professor Sudha Setty Named Dean of School of Law

Sudha N. Setty has been named the next Dean of Western New England University School of Law. University President Anthony S. Caprio announced the appointment, effective July 1, 2018.

“Professor Setty is a fine teacher and scholar who understands fully the challenges we currently face in higher education and those which we will continue to confront in these times of unprecedented change in legal education,” said President Caprio. “Her wisdom, intellect, training, experience, and energy will serve the Law School (its faculty, staff, students, and alumni), the University, and the legal community very well for many years to come.”

Setty will succeed Eric J. Gouvin, who has chosen to return to the faculty after five years at the helm of the School of Law.

“It is an honor to lead an institution in which I strongly believe, with students that I care about deeply, and with talented faculty and dedicated staff. Law schools are in a unique position of needing to think broadly about the future of legal education, as well as the future of a just society,” says Setty. “I am excited to commence my term as the dean at Western New England, where our driving focus is to launch the careers of thoughtful, dedicated lawyers who work in the service of their clients and for the betterment of society.”
