Cleveland State University has named Craig M. Boise to dean of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. CSU President Ronald Berkman said Boise stood out among the impressive list of candidates for his academic and administrative credentials.
"Craig has published extensively and is well respected for his research in money laundering and offshore banking practices," Berkman said. "He brings an intellectual approach to law that clearly stands out among his peers."
Most recently, Boise served as law professor at DePaul University in Chicago, where he was director of the Graduate Tax Program. Prior to that, he was an associate law professor at Case Western Reserve University. He earned his law degree from the University of Chicago and a master of law from New York University. Boise will be Cleveland-Marshall's 14th dean and the law school's first African-American dean.
