EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The University of Oregon has selected a new dean for its law school after a nationwide search.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/iQS0d4 ) that University of Houston law school associate dean Marcilynn Burke will begin work at UO on July 1. Burke succeeds Michael Moffitt, who is returning to teaching.

Burke has a background in property law, land use law and federal natural resources law. In a news release she said UO feels like a “natural fit.”

Burke will earn $370,000 a year plus base salary.

Burke joined the University of Houston law school in 2002. She was named its associate dean in 2014. Burke took a leave of absence from the university in 2009 to work for the U.S. Department of Interior under the administration of President Barack Obama.
