Distinguished professor Dame Hazel Genn has been appointed as the new Dean of the University College London (UCL) law faculty.
Genn, who has embarked on a five-year term as Dean of the faculty, used to be professor of socio-legal studies and co-director of the Centre for Empirical Legal Studies at UCL.
The professor will join an impressive roster of past alumni including Indian political and spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi and former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales Lord Woolf.
And Genn, who previously headed the Department of Law at Queen Mary, University of London, couldnt be more excited at the appointment.
She said, I look forward to working with my colleagues in Laws and in other UCL faculties to build on our reputation for excellence and innovation in research and teaching and to help address the global challenges of inequality, security, sustainability and identity.
Genn is also looking forward to playing a pivotal role in showcasing what the faculty has achieved on a global scale.
I am keen to strengthen the Facultys links with the profession in London and enhance the key role that UCL academics have played globally in developing legal policy and practice, Genn said.
