Mike FlynnSanta Clara University School of Law is pleased to welcome Mike Flynn as the new associate dean for Academic Affairs beginning on June 1. He replaces Bradley Joondeph, who served in this role for five years. Flynn joined Santa Clara Law in 2010 and teaches a variety of courses, including Legal Research and Writing as well as Advanced Legal Writing. He earned his J.D. from UC Hastings College of Law and his B.A. from Tufts University.

Dean Lisa Kloppenberg expressed her gratitude to Joondeph for his service. “His calm, wise presence has been invaluable to our community during the past five years,” says Kloppenberg. “As a brilliant yet humble scholar and data guru, Brad has been very helpful in making informed decisions and adapting to changes in our market. He also has served as a helpful counselor—to students, faculty, and staff members—and he has created many collaborative, productive teams.”
