Lee Fisher has been appointed dean of Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Fisher has served as interim dean of the College since June 2016. Fisher will continue to enhance the law school’s academic reputation, while building on the innovative efforts Cleveland-Marshall has recently developed to enhance career readiness for its graduates and promote greater connectivity with the Cleveland community.
Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will recognize Linda Klein, president of the American Bar Association, Steven Percy ’79, former chairman/CEO of BP America and Richard Pogue, former managing partner of Jones Day, with honorary Doctor of Laws degrees from CSU during the law school’s 2017 graduation ceremony.
In February 2017, Steven Percy '79, former chairman and CEO of BP America Inc., became Cleveland-Marshall College of Law’s first Leader-in-Residence. The newly established Leader-in-Residence volunteer program is designed to closely connect students, staff and faculty with key community leaders who offer a breadth of knowledge in their field of expertise.
