The July 29 issue of Chicago Daily Law Bulletin features Eric Dannenmaier, the new dean of the NIU College of Law.

Dannenmaier “pursued the position of dean at NIU because it seemed like a natural fit,” the article states.

“For me,” the story quotes Dannenmaier, “it was about the opportunity to contribute to an educational enterprise, to contribute to a law school that’s done an excellent job of educating students to become lawyers, practicing in the public interest, practicing in a number of fields of law that advance important social goals.”

NIU, headded, “is a law school on the rise and my privilege, my job, is to support that continued growth.”

On the job since July 1, Dannenmaier offers praise for the experiential learning opportunities at NIU Law as well as the thriving alumni network.

“It is a community that cares deeply about and stays connected with the school because they care deeply about and stay connected with how law is interpreted, how it’s taught and how it’s employed to serve society.”
