Dean Davis steps down as Law School dean, to return to teaching

Dean Davis has sent this email to the law students at Ole Miss law school:

This year marks the last year of my third term as Dean of the School of Law. After much reflection and discussion with both the Chancellor and the Provost, I have decided that this year will be my last year as Dean. Therefore, I will be stepping down as Dean as of June 30, 2010.

It has been a privilege and an honor for me to serve as Dean for the last twelve and a half years. The Law School is a much better place that it was in July 1997 when I began my service as Dean. I will not repeat all of the accomplishments that I summarized in my recent statement, but I will add that I did not accomplish all of them alone. Together, with faculty, staff, students, and alumni, we have improved considerably by any objective measure. I thank all of you for your contributions to the betterment of the Law School.
