DePaul removes law school dean

Glen Weissenberger has been dismissed as the dean of the DePaul University College of Law, short of two years into his second term.

University spokeswoman Denise Mattson said Weissenberger, who remains on the faculty as a law professor, was removed Thursday at the recommendation of the provost, Helmut Epp.

Epp sent a note to the law school’s faculty and staff Thursday saying, “The working relationship between the dean and the administration had deteriorated to the point where it had become difficult to accomplish the college’s work,” Mattson said.

Weissenberger could not be reached for comment Friday.

But in an e-mail he sent to law faculty members Friday morning that was obtained by the Tribune, Weissenberger said he “was not terminated for any wrong doing of any kind.” Rather, his “termination was based specifically” on a letter he sent Tuesday to the American Bar Association in advance of a meeting of its accreditation committee next week.

In that letter, which also was obtained by the Tribune, Weissenberger told the committee that a revenue-sharing agreement between the university and the law school “frequently has been disregarded by the University.”
