“We are excited by this news, but we’re not surprised,” said Professor Kathleen Boozang, who has been named Dean of Seton Hall Law, effective July 1. “Seton Hall Law students are incredibly popular with employers, who know they will pass the bar exam and be ready to hit the ground running the first day they walk in the office. Our Office of Career Services provides stellar support to current students, graduates finishing clerkships, and alums considering a career move. Our students also greatly benefit from an extremely loyal alumni base. I know the Class of 2014 will hire those who come after them.”
