Legal Aid is delighted to pass along the news that UDC Law School has announced that former Executive Director Jonathan Smith will be UDC’s new Associate Dean of Experiential and Clinical Programs. Jonathan will oversee UDC Law School’s nationally-ranked clinic program which has established itself among the nation’s elite programs. In March 2015, US News & World Report ranked UDC Law School’s clinic program seventh nationally.
As I stated in the Law School's press release, issued yesterday: “UDC is fortunate to have recruited Jonathan Smith as its newest dean. Jonathan is a deep thinker and visionary on poverty law issues. After accomplishing so much on the national stage, we are excited that he will once again be devoting his extraordinary talents and indefatigable nature to D.C.'s low-income community.”
We congratulate UDC Law School on this extraordinary hire!
