Mark W. Cordes, interim dean of the NIU College of Law, recently answered questions from the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin about his ideas and goals for the next year.
According to the article, published Sept. 1, Cordes is preparing the school for its American Bar Association accreditation visit in 2017 and developing a new strategic plan.
“We have a tremendous law school here, and my job is made much easier by the faculty and the staff and the students body and the strong alumni base we have,” Cordes told Law Bulletin staff writer Jack Silverstein. “This is a year in which the school will continue to move forward building on the strong foundation left by former Dean Jennifer Rosato Perea.”
Cordes’ contract as interim dean ends June 30, 2016.
