Garry Jenkins

Dean
University of Minnesota Law School

Garry Jenkins arrived at the U’s law school at a pivotal time. Declining enrollment has hit law schools everywhere; the U’s program has tapped general operating budget funds to cover losses. Jenkins, a Harvard Law School graduate, brings some Wall Street savvy to the U: He has served as COO and general counsel for the Goldman Sachs Foundation. More recently, he was associate dean of academic affairs for Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law. In Minnesota, Jenkins—who has a reputation for collaborative leadership—has already begun connecting with the local legal and corporate community.
