Andrew R. Klein has been appointed dean of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.

Klein, 50, has served in the IUPUI Chancellor’s Cabinet as chief of staff since 2010 and took on additional responsibilities as associate vice chancellor for academic affairs in 2012.

He will be the 12th dean of the McKinney law school since it became part of IU in 1944. He is the Paul E. Beam Professor of Law and served as associate dean for academic affairs from 2004 to 2007.

“Andy has made exceptional contributions to both the McKinney School of Law and the development of the IUPUI campus during his tenure, and his expertise, leadership and experience make him an outstanding choice as the next dean,” IU President Michael A. McRobbie said in a written statement.

Klein will begin as dean July 1, pending approval of the IU board of trustees. Current Dean Gary Roberts is retiring as dean this year.

    My opinion of Klein is lessened by the fact that he wants to be Dean. At least now he gets to keep a percentage of the sales, I mean, tuition.
  • Great Choice
    This is a great choice - he is an awesome person!
