Thomas Jefferson School of Law is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Anders Kaye as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
Professor Kaye has been a dedicated member of the faculty since 2002. An expert in criminal law and theory, he has ably served as Co-Director of the Criminal Law Fellowship Program and the Center for Criminal Law and Policy. “Anders has shown a tremendous commitment to Thomas Jefferson School of Law, its students, and graduates,” noted Interim Dean Linda Keller. “I am confident he will bring that same commitment and thoughtfulness to the role of Associate Dean for Academic Affairs,” she added.
After graduating from the University of Chicago Law School, Professor Kaye completed a judicial clerkship with Judge A. Wallace Tashima on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He then served as an associate appellate counsel for the Criminal Appeals Bureau of The Legal Aid Society of New York, where he represented defendants convicted of crimes ranging from pick-pocketing to murder, and where he served as an alternate vice-president for the Association of Legal Aid Attorneys, a union affiliated with the UAW. He was also a consulting attorney for the Capital Defender’s Office of New York.
“I want to thank Dean Keller for giving me the opportunity to help build and sustain a great program of legal education and a vibrant, dynamic law school community. I’m truly excited about the project, and looking forward to continuing collaboration with all of you,” said Professor Kaye.
