Wake Forest University School of Law Dean Blake D. Morant has been appointed to the Federal Judicial Center Foundation Board by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. Morant’s five-year term began Oct. 24. The board reviews and accepts proposed gifts for the work of the Federal Judicial Center, which provides orientation and continuing education to federal judges and court personnel and conducts policy research about federal court procedures and practices. Morant’s appointment continues Wake Forest Law’s close relationship with the nation’s High Court and the Federal Judicial Center Foundation Board. Dean Emeritus and Professor Robert Walsh’s five-year term on the board ends this year. Walsh was appointed to the board by Roberts in 2008.
