Christopher J. (C.J.) Peters

Welcome Dean C.J. Peters!

Following a national search, Christopher J. (C.J.) Peters, the associate dean for faculty scholarship and a professor of law at the University of Baltimore School of Law, has been appointed dean of the School of Law. His first day will be June 15.

“The school’s reputation is growing, and there’s a real buzz around the place,” Peters said. “Faculty, staff and students are proud to be at Akron Law. I was especially impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication of the faculty and staff members I met. They really care about providing a first-rate legal education, and they’re working overtime – often quite literally – to make Akron Law the best institution it can be.”
