David Caron Named New Dean at King’s College London Law School

Dean CaronMy friend and colleague David Caron, C. William Maxeiner Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, has been named the new Dean at the Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London. The press release is here.

I have known David Caron for over twenty years and always thought he would make an excellent Dean or Judge. He has tremendous administrative experience, having served at the highest levels at ASIL, the ABA’s Section on International Law, the Law of Sea Institute, and the Institute for Transnational Arbitration.

He also brings a wealth of international law knowledge to the subject, including public and private dispute resolution, international courts and tribunals, the United Nations, the law of the sea, and international environmental law. On top of his academic chops, he remains seriously engaged with the legal profession. He served at Pillsbury Madison & Sutro before joining the academy, regularly consults with law firms around the world, and serves as an arbitrator in various commercial and investment matters.

David not only has a great head he also has a great heart. His enthusiasm is infectious, his laughter contagious, and his genuine warmth toward students and colleagues a model for us all. When I was starting my career twenty years ago in The Hague, he’s the kind of person that I looked to and thought to myself, “I want to be like that some day.”

He will be a great Dean, and will substantially contribute to the global reputation of King’s College.

    A great tribute to a great human being, scholar, teacher, public servant and adjudicator, as well as friend, who will be a classy global Dean. When he clerked for me (and even then was my teacher) in The Hague nearly 30 years ago, anyone could see that he was marked for great distinction. Nothing since then has been a surprise. I look forward to seeing more of Susan and him in London!

    Superlative choice! David is an excellent scholar and administrator. He will bring great knowledge and ability to that position. His presence will also help the school capitalize on the legal profession’s increasing acceptance of internationally educated attorneys.
