Since 1927, St. Mary’s University School of Law has had ten deans: Anton N. Moursund, Henry R. Dieleman, Ernest A. Raba, James N. Castleberry Jr., Barbara Bader Aldave, Robert William “Bill” Piatt, Charles E. Cantù, Stephen M. Sheppard, Vincent R. Johnson (interim), and Patricia Roberts. In this section we share our research about each dean’s legacy at the Law School. We will be regularly adding their biographies to this section of the website.
