Professor with anti-discrimination expertise appointed dean at Northwestern Law

A Northwestern law professor whose research focuses on employment and education law, Yuracko will replace Daniel Rodriguez, who is stepping down as dean this summer, according to a Northwestern press release.

“Her talents as a legal scholar focusing on anti-discrimination law in employment and gender equity in education are well-suited for leading our great law school, and she has excelled in a number of administrative roles at Northwestern Law,” Jonathan Holloway, the university’s provost, said in the release.

Previously, Yuracko served as the law school’s interim dean and its associate dean for academic affairs. She has a law degree and a PhD in political science from Stanford University, and she holds a joint appointment with Northwestern’s political science department.
