Ronald J. Daniels ’88LLM

He was dean of a law school at 36, provost at Penn at 46. And in March, the 49-year-old Ronald J. Daniels ’88LLM will become president of Johns Hopkins University. The appointment of Daniels, who was a professor and dean at the University of Toronto Law School, has led some arts and sciences people at Hopkins to hope that their day has come at an institution that is heavily weighted toward medicine. Daniels took his undergraduate and law degrees from Toronto; his Yale degree is a one-year Master of Laws for lawyers who want to pursue teaching. Like most university presidents, Daniels will have a faculty appointment at Hopkins. But for the first time in his career, he’ll be on the political science faculty: Hopkins doesn’t have a law school.
