SBAND Congratulates UND School of Law Dean Michael McGinniss

I am very pleased to announce that University of North Dakota School of Law Professor Michael McGinniss has been named Dean. The University will announce his official start date soon. 
 
Professor McGinniss has a history of engagement with North Dakota lawyers beyond teaching at the school of law. He serves as chair of the North Dakota Supreme Court’s Joint Committee on Attorney Standards and has been an active member of the Randy H. Lee Inns of Court. Professor McGinniss has also been instrumental in SBAND’s Annual Meeting lecture series, one of the highlights of our Annual Meeting. Professor McGinniss’ straight forward approach of effectively working through issues will greatly aide our law school in navigating it through difficult waters. 
 
SBAND is excited to continue its partnership with UND School of Law. And we will work with Dean McGinniss to foster an environment that attracts good students and produces good lawyers for the state of North Dakota. Budget cuts have taken a toll on the law school. And that is why I believe it is even more important for those who share an interest in the success of our law school to take a proactive approach in reaching out to Dean McGinniss to let him know that we support him and the law school. I am sure Dean McGinniss would love to hear from you—your ideas, concerns, and observations. 
 
Dean McGinniss’ appointment comes at the end of an extensive search process. I would like to thank the search committee and everyone involved in the search for a new Dean. And now that a decision has been made, it is time to offer our full support to Dean McGinniss to ensure the continued success of our law school.

 
Thank you.

Sincerely,


Zack Pelham
SBAND President
