Read the official announcement here. Below is an excerpt:

… As associate dean of academic affairs at Temple Law since 1989, Epps has served as the primary liaison between the dean and the law faculty; overseen student administrative operations, from admissions to career planning; and assisted the dean in faculty personnel decisions, fundraising and alumni relations.

Epps joined the Temple Law faculty in 1985; she teaches”Evidence,”“Criminal Procedure”and”Trial Advocacy.”She was appointed a full professor in 1994, and served as the I. Herman Stern Professor of Law, a rotating professorship honoring teaching excellence, from 1997 to 2000.

Although she has been a faculty member for more than two decades, Epps’ connections to the university run far deeper. Her first job at 16 was as a cashier at Temple’s bookstore, and her mother was a Temple employee.

An authority on evidence, criminal procedure and litigation advocacy, Epps is the author or co-author of several articles and books that are widely used by law students and lawyers, including The Winning Argument (2001) and 100 Vignettes for Improving Trial Evidence (2005). …

I am exceedingly fond of both Temple and JoAnne, so this is really exciting news! I believe that she is Temple Law’s first woman Dean!

    As a 2L at Temple Law, I am ecstatic that Dean Epps was chosen to replace Dean Reinstein.

    She is fabulously talented and it can only benefit Temple to have a woman and person of color steering the ship.

    Thanks for including this post!
