Welcome from Dean Timothy S. Fisher

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the UConn School of Law as a member of the entering classes of 2016 and 2017 this fall. This is a time of excitement at UConn, reflecting events both inside and outside the law school. I arrived as dean on July 1, 2013 following thirty-five years in private practice.
