William Brewbaker began his duties as acting interim dean of The University of Alabama School of Law July 1.

Brewbaker will act as dean until a search committee has found a permanent candidate to replace Kenneth Randall, who was the dean of the School of Law for 20 years. Randall reportedly stepped down from the position in order to pursue work in the private sector.

Brewbaker has been a member of the UA School of Law faculty since 1993. After graduating from Vanderbilt University with his bachelor’s degree and earning his J.D. at the University of Virginia, Brewbaker practiced law in Birmingham for six years. He earned his LL.M from Duke University.

In addition, James Leonard will serve as the interim vice dean of the UA School of Law.
