A public town hall meeting with University of Iowa College of Law dean candidate Maureen O'Rourke will be held at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 10 in the Levitt Auditorium of the Boyd Law Building.

The public is invited to attend.

O'Rourke is currently associate dean for academic affairs at Boston University Law School. She holds a B.S. with highest honors from Marist College and a J.D. with honors from Yale University Law School. She is a former Boston University associate dean for administration.

O'Rourke is the seventh and final candidate who is being interviewed to succeed N. William Hines, who is stepping down as dean in June. In mid-February, the search committee will forward the names of three finalists to UI President David Skorton, who will make the final selection.
