DePaul Ousts Law Dean

June 22, 2009

DePaul University has removed Glen Weissenberger as dean of the law school -- amid a dispute over the law school's financial contributions to the university, according to the Chicago Tribune. Weissenberger lost his job (but will remain on the faculty) after he complained to the American Bar Association about what he saw as the university's disregard for an agreement under which the law school gets to keep 75 percent of its net tuition revenues. The university said that the law school is getting to keep that revenue, and that the decision to remove the dean came before the letter was sent to the ABA. Students have started an online petition to demand the reinstatement of Weissenberger as the dean.
