Marquette Law School Dean Has Big Plans For The Future

Marquette University

If you follow the news closely in Milwaukee, you’ll often hear expert analysis from people such as political scientist and pollster Charles Franklin, and education policy expert Alan Borsuk. What they have in common is that they’re both employed at the city’s only law school.

Marquette University Law School is headed by Dean Joseph Kearney, who brought those two experts on as senior fellows, along with former anchorman MikeGousha.

At around the same time, the law school built and moved into its high tech new home, which includes everything from meeting spaces to underground parking. It’s part of a larger vision for the law school within the community.

Joe Kearney spoke with Lake Effect's Bonnie North recently at the University Club of Milwaukee about his plans to improve the experience of attending Marquette Law School.

"It seems to me that a university ought to be bringing to the city that it serves people with expertise from other places, who might make connections at the university but with individuals who are not part of the university," Kearney says.
