The University of Wyoming appointed one of its associate law school deans to be interim dean of the College of Law on Thursday.
The decision came one week after Dean Stephen Easton announced his resignation due to an advisory task force being assembled by university President Bob Sternberg.
Jacquelyn Bridgeman has been a member of the UW College of Law faculty since 2002, according to a UW release. Bridgeman, a 1992 graduate of Laramie High School, is a member of the Wyoming Center for Legal Aid board and the Wyoming Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. She coaches youth basketball in Laramie.
Bridgeman will take over as interim dean for Easton, whose resignation is effective Nov. 15.
