The task of chairing a dean search committee can be daunting. Despite the fact that competent performance of the task may affect the success of the search and, in turn, have an effect on the fortunes of the law school, the existing literature provides little guidance to search committee chairs. This Article addresses that shortage of information by providing an account of how one dean search chair carried out the task. While by no means a roadmap or how-to guide, this Article does illustrate how the search committee chair at one law school analyzed and addressed the issues arising in a dean search.
