Senior Vice Chancellor Patricia Beeson says, “Professor Carter’s vision for the School of Law is well matched to our overall vision for the University, he is committed to building the school in ways that will further enhance the scholarly contributions of our faculty, enable our students to be successful in their legal careers, and engage the legal profession both locally and nationally. I am delighted that Professor Carter has agreed to serve as dean of the School of Law and have great confidence that his scholarly leadership and commitment to excellence in legal education will serve us well.”
Carter, widely respected for his scholarship in constitutional law, international human rights law, and issues of social justice was a professor of law at the Temple University Beasley School of Law and also has served on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Carter officially became the Pitt Law’s dean on July 1, 2012.
Carter says he wants to make the law school a part of the community and he hopes to live up to the kind words and warm welcome he has received from the Pittsburgh community. He already feels like this is home although he has only been in Pittsburgh for eight weeks.
University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark Nordenberg said this about Carter, “He had the good sense to move out of Cleveland.”
