Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center is pleased to announce that Professor Louise Harmon has been named Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Faculty Development, and Professor Tracy McGaugh has been named Assistant Dean for Academic Advising.

In her new capacity, Associate Dean Harmon will work closely with faculty members to assist them in research and in the publication of the resulting scholarship from that work. She will continue teaching classes at Touro Law Center.

“With the creation of this position, we now have an added focus on faculty development. The selection of Professor Harmon for this position will ensure that a senior faculty member with a distinguished record of scholarship will spend a significant amount of time on faculty research, scholarship and development and the related broader issues of academic affairs,” said Dean Lawrence Raful. “I believe this is an important step for Touro Law Center and am confident that the work and efforts of Associate Dean Harmon will showcase Touro Law in a new light by promoting and supporting our community of scholars.”
