Pitt Law alumnus Todd Clark is the new dean of Delaware Law School
Todd Clark (LAW ’03) was named dean of Widener University’s Delaware Law School, which holds a historic reputation as the state’s only law school.
The professor of law at St. Thomas University in Florida is a recognized expert in corporate governance, contracts, employment discrimination, hip-hop law and sports law. During his tenure as senior associate dean of academic affairs, he also co-chaired the school’s Center for Pandemic, Disaster and Quarantine Research. Clark also taught at North Carolina Central University School of Law after receiving his J.D. from Pitt’s School of Law.
Delaware Law School has graduated more than 200 judges, including a sitting Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court and a sitting Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court. Clark, who was president of the Black Law Students Association while studying at Pitt, will lead the school as it faces its first competitor — Wilmington University’s School of Law — since its first class graduated in 1975.
