Law School dean named University of Utah president

Posted 9:15 p.m. Thursday, April 29 GW Law School Dean Michael Young will be leaving his post to assume the presidency of the University of Utah.

Young, who was one of three candidates being considered for the position, will start his new job in the summer, Utah officials said in a statement released Thursday night.

“I look forward to working with the excellent administrators, faculty, and staff of the University, getting to know the students and becoming part of the larger Utah community,” Young was quoted as saying in the press release.

GW officials said they would appoint a committee of Law School faculty members to interview replacements for Young, who came to the University in 1998.
