William Hubbard, Chair of the Board of Directors of the World Justice Project, has been named the new dean of the University of South Carolina's School of Law, the state's only public law school. A former president of the American Bar Association, Hubbard is a prominent attorney and partner with the Columbia office of Nelson Mullins, South Carolina's largest firm, and is an alumnus of the University of South Carolina.
"I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to work with the law school family, as well as our external stakeholders to bring additional support to the law school," Hubbard said. "I am most excited to be able to work with our students to ensure they have the tools to continue to develop their advocacy skills, respect for the rule of law, and passion for justice. These students will be South Carolina’s leaders of tomorrow. I will do everything I can to help them reach their full potential as lawyers and citizens."
