Dean Gold profiled in "Lawyer Limelight" Q&A by Lawdragon

Victor Gold, Fritz B. Burns Dean of Loyola Law School, discussed the Law School's mission, its core strengths and his path to academia in a "Lawyer Limelight" Q&A feature on Lawdragon.


LD: What are your biggest challenges as dean and how are you meeting them? 

VG: Ensuring that a law degree remains a good investment for our graduates is our biggest challenge.  To meet it, Loyola has made more changes to its academic program and its administrative structure over the last five years than we saw in the preceding 25 years. We have instituted a dozen new concentration programs, expanded clinics and externships, modernized the first-year curriculum, reduced the size of the entering class, cut budgets to control costs and instituted new degree programs.
