Ken Gormley has been elevated from his post as interim Dean of the Duquesne University Law School to Dean. President Charles Dougherty made the announcement this morning. Dougherty says, "We are delighted to have such an accomplished teacher-scholar, active member of the Bar and influential author leading our School of Law." Gormley was named interim dean of the school in December 2008 after Don Guter was relieved of his duties by President Dougherty in a controversial move. Gormley says, “It is a great honor to be selected to lead Duquesne's School of Law at this important time in its history. As we prepare to celebrate our hundredth anniversary next year… I am grateful for the opportunity to further contribute to and continue this legacy." Gormley has published several books, his most recent carries the title, “The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr.” Gormley was recently interviewed on NPR's Fresh Air. Gormley holds a B.A., from the University of Pittsburgh and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
