FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nova Southeastern University (NSU) President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., has announced the appointment of Jon Garon, J.D., as dean of the Shepard Broad Law Center. 

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., has announced the appointment of Jon Garon, J.D., as dean of the Shepard Broad Law Center.

Garon is currently a tenured professor of law and founding director of the Chase Law + Informatics Institute (an interdisciplinary program in law, business and technology) at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Ky. He will commence his appointment on July 1.

In his role, Garon will serve as the chief academic and administrative officer of the Law Center, working with a remarkably diverse community of scholars and students in the creation of new programs and initiatives for its students, graduates, and members of the bar.

Garon succeeds Athornia Steele, J.D., who stepped down in September 2013, but will return to teaching at the Law Center after a short sabbatical. Elena B. Langan, J.D., professor of law and associate dean for academic affairs has served as interim dean and will return to her previous duties.

"Mr. Garon's academic achievements, engaging vision, and passion for the law and the future of legal education, make him ideally suited to build upon the excellent work of his predecessors and to further advance the visibility of the Law Center," said President Hanbury.

Previously, Garon served as dean of the Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minn., where he also served as interim dean of its School of Business. Prior to that, he served as a member of the faculty at the University of New Hampshire School of Law in Concord.   At Hamline University, Garon created and advanced law school programs to national ranking and secured approval for two joint degree programs.  In his relatively brief time at Northern Kentucky University, he grew the Chase Law + Informatics Institute to national acclaim as one of the top 13 law school's nationwide teaching law practice technology and securing the school's first $1 million donation to name the W. Bruce Lunsford Academy for Law, Business and Technology. 

A noted authority in the study of the future of legal education, having served as past chair of the American Bar Association's Law School Administration Committee and American Association of Law Schools Section on Part-Time Legal Education, Garon's scholarship extends broadly over the areas of emerging technologies, and their impact on business, society, the practice of law and delivery of legal education, as well as the field of entertainment law.

Garon received his Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Theater from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and his Juris Doctor from Columbia Law School in New York where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
