Cynthia L. Fountaine is joining the UNT Dallas College of Law this summer as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law.
During the past 11 years, Fountaine displayed vast legal expertise in both of her Dean of Law and Professor of Law roles at Southern Illinois University School of Law.
With almost 30 years of experience in legal education and administration, Law School leadership says she will be an exceptional asset to the Dallas institution.
“I am excited to join the UNT Dallas College of Law to help advance its mission,” said the Professor. “I am so impressed with the faculty, staff, and students and all they have accomplished so far, and I am looking forward to helping the law school as it continues to build its program of legal education to provide outstanding opportunities for students.”
No stranger to Texas, Fountaine previously served as Interim Dean and also instructed classes at Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law), where she was a law professor for 13 years.
Additional professional experience includes Washington & Lee University School of Law as a visiting professor and University of Cincinnati College of Law. Also, she taught at the University of Bayreuth Faculty of Law in Germany as a Fulbright Senior Scholar. She has been active in many professional organizations, including the American Bar Association and the Association of American Law Schools. She was recently named the SIU Law Class of 2021 Outstanding Faculty Member.
Fountaine begins her new position at the Dallas Law Center campus on August 1, 2021.
