ROLC Executive Director Joel Samuels Named Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, ROLC Adds New Staff

We are excited to share a number of major developments for the team at the Rule of Law Collaborative (ROLC) at the University of South Carolina.

Beginning in January 2021, ROLC Executive Director Joel Samuels has been appointed as Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Since 2015, under Professor Samuels’s leadership, ROLC has expanded its number of programs nine-fold and quintupled its number of staff. Among other things, Professor Samuels was instrumental in the success of the Justice Sector Training, Research, and Coordination (JUSTRAC) program, a $5-million State Department-funded program that ran from 2014-2019 and established ROLC as a leader in training for federal government personnel engaged in justice sector and rule of law reform work. Through the JUSTRAC program, ROLC established key working relationships with various offices and bureaus of the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Department of Justice, and others.
