FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Dean Stacy Leeds and the University of Arkansas School of Law faculty and staff welcome Tamla Lewis to the school's administrative team. Lewis joined the school as associate dean for administration in March and will serve in a chief of staff capacity. She will be responsible for compliance and external reporting and provide innovative leadership for special projects. She will coordinate with student affairs and serve as primary liaison to law student organizations.

"We are excited to have Tamla back in the School of Law as part of our senior leadership," Leeds said. "The skills and broad institutional knowledge she brings from both the general counsel's office and her time here as a student will make her transition seamless."   

Prior to joining the law school, Lewis served nearly a decade in the university's Office of General Counsel, where she worked on a wide range of legal issues including policy development and revision, employment law, student affairs, campus safety, transactional and property matters and responses to Freedom of Information Act requests. Before that, she was an associate at Mitchell, Williams, Selig, Gates and Woodyard PLLC in Rogers.

Lewis graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English, magna cum laude, from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. She holds a Master of Education in workforce development education with emphasis in human resource development from the University of Arkansas College of Education and Health Professions and a Juris Doctor from the University of Arkansas School of Law.
