Syracuse Law Review Presents Richard A. Matasar Symposium Issue on the Future of Legal and Higher Education

Posted on Wednesday 6/15/2016

The June 2016, Vol. 66, No. 3, Issue of the Syracuse Law Review is a specially organized Symposium book titled: Richard A. Matasar Symposium, The Future of Legal and Higher Education. Matasar, Tulane University Senior Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and Institutional Effectiveness, has written extensively on change in higher education. 

The Symposium event was hosted at Dineen Hall and attended by a distinguished group of law school deans and former deans. The event was inspired by Matasar’s scholarship on legal and higher education, and was co-chaired by Former College of Law Dean Hannah Arterian and Former USC Gould School of Law Dean Robert Rasmussen. 

The Issue includes the transcript from Matasar’s question and answer at the Symposium, and features more than a dozen original scholarly works from noted law school deans and professors. Arterian was instrumental in ensuring a wide range of essays and articles were contributed to Syracuse Law Review. Her essay, “Engaging the Challenge to Legal and Higher Education: How Richard Matasar Calls the Questions,” is included in the publication, along with an original article from Matasar. 

The Issue is available online at lawreview.syr.edu.
