Interim chief named UM law school dean

April 07, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Karen Rothenberg, who has been on the faculty of the University of Maryland law school for 17 years, has been named dean of the school.

Rothenberg, who holds degrees from Princeton University and the University of Virginia, was named interim dean last year when Donald E. Gifford resigned.

She is the first woman to head the Baltimore school in its 184-year history.

A resident of Bethesda, Rothenberg is a scholar in health care law and bioethics.

She founded the school's Law and Health Care program, which was recently ranked among the top five in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.
