Liberty Announces New Law School Dean
Liberty University has officially announced the selection of B. Keith Faulkner as the new dean of their school of law. Faulkner plans to assume the position as dean on October 1, after 10 years of senior leadership at Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law.
“Keith Faulkner is an experienced legal education administrator, who I believe is uniquely qualified to lead Liberty University School of Law, and we are honored to welcome him to Liberty,” said Liberty President Jerry Falwell in a released statement. “Both the search committee and faculty were impressed by Mr. Faulkner’s practical skills and his commitment to the Christian mission of this law school.”
Faulkner most recently served as the dean of Campbell’s graduate business program, the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business. At Campbell’s law school, he served in a host of positions, including interim dean, associate dean for external relations, executive associate for academic and administrative affairs, and vice dean.
Faulkner holds both his J.D. and M.B.A. from Campbell and his B.S. in business administration from Charleston Southern University. Before joining Campbell, Faulkner worked as a litigation associate for a law firm in Wilmington, North Carolina. He has also served for eight years in the U.S. Navy as a submariner, nuclear power plant operator, and instructor in the Nuclear Power Training Pipeline.
