Whenever we have written a story on law school placement or new associate hiring, for the past 26 years, we’ve always called Rob Kaplan, dean of career services, at the William & Mary law school to find out the scoop there. He’s always returned our calls, given us straight info and been a pleasure to work with.
Kaplan has made a move, reports the school. As of May 10, he is now Associate Dean for Externships, Judicial Clerkships, and Public Service Initiatives and Legal Writing Instructor.
Dean Davison Douglas reported that Kaplan now will be a writing instructor W&M’s new Legal Skills program, which will be headed by Meredith Aden, a new member of the faculty. Kaplan also will work to place students in externships, clerkships and public service programs.
Let me say two things: Thanks, Rob, for all your help over the years. And best of luck in the new program. We’ll be calling sometime in the future to find out how it’s going.
