Todd Clark, New Delaware Law School Dean Specializes In Hip Hop Law

Widener University announces the appointment of Todd J Clark, an accomplished leader, scholar, and award-winning professor, as Delaware Law School’s new dean.

Clark will begin his role July 1, after serving as senior associate dean of Academic Affairs and professor of law at St. Thomas University (“STU”) College of Law in Florida.

Clark is an inclusive and visionary leader who, as dean, will build on the law school’s more than 50 years of accomplishments in a state renowned for its courts and distinguished bar.

He will expand the culture of belonging that is a hallmark of a Widener education, where students gain hands-on experience in clinics, externships, and fellowships that prepare them for the successful practice of law.

He will lead all aspects of the law school, from academics to operations to community engagement.

“We are excited to welcome Todd Clark to Delaware Law School,” Widener President Stacey Robertson said. “His oversight of STU’s academic success, bar preparation, and student health and wellness programs have uniquely prepared him to be dean of Delaware Law. His energetic leadership and vision for legal education align with Widener’s relentless commitment to student success. I am confident he is a bold, collaborative leader who will not only engage with students and faculty but also the Delaware legal community – which is highly populated with our alumni.”

He is currently a tenured professor at STU, where he specializes in corporate governance, contracts, employment discrimination, hip-hop law, and sports law.
