MC Law Hits a Homerun! Hires Randy Pierce as Dean of Advancement

MC Law has been making waves in the professional community lately. They announced a facelift coming to the Law School, new logos and marketing efforts, a new permanent Dean and now made a hire for Assistant Dean of Advancement that has turned the Mississippi legal community on its ear.

Randy Pierce, former Supreme Court Justice, Chancellor, executive director of the Mississippi Judicial College, and acclaimed author, has accepted the position of Assistant Dean of Advancement at MC Law.

Justice Pierce is no stranger to MC Law having taught hundreds of students as an Adjunct Professor.

Justice Pierce likely knows every lawyer in the state of Mississippi and will now put those relationships to work.

Justice Pierce will be in charge of strategic advancement efforts, promoting the great things happening at MC Law, responsible for engagement of public relations and spearhead fundraising campaigns; advancing the brand of the law school.

Justice Pierce’s reputation in the professional and legal community precedes him and is beyond reproach. He is mutually respected by peers, colleagues, the judiciary, the public, politicos from all sides of the aisle and even fans from all Universities in the State!

MC Law has hit a homerun with hires of late and great things are happening.

Matthew Thompson is the unabashed cheerleader for all things MC Law, a 2005 graduate, current Law Alumni president, adjunct professor and even has a brick with his name on it at the law school.

Dr. John P. Anderson

MC Law Alumni,

The Board of Trustees has approved the appointment of Dr. John Anderson as permanent dean of the law school, effective immediately.

Mississippi College President, Dr. Blake Thompson, announced the great news. “MC Law has enjoyed a productive year under Dean Anderson’s leadership as interim dean. He has continued the school’s pursuit of academic excellence, managed the administrative duties inherent in running an academic organization, recruited several important additions to the law school team, and made significant plans for the future of MC Law. Dean Anderson’s character and values match those of our institution, and his energy is infectious.”

Dr. Blake Thompson continued, “I am confident that the great progress of MC Law will continue under his leadership. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Anderson on his well-earned appointment, and continue to keep MC Law in your prayers.”

On a personal note and as MC Law Alumni President, I am very excited about Dean Anderson and the direction the law school is heading. I am excited about the relationship between the law school and main campus. From my limited view, this relationship is stronger now than ever and both institutions are moving in very positive directions.

MC Law has a lot to offer potential and current students. Not only from a location in the very epicenter of Mississippi’s legal community, but also to a qualified, caring faculty and a family environment for students.
