FREDERICTON – Dr. Jeremy Levitt is voluntarily resigning his deanship at the faculty of law at the University of New Brunswick with immediate effect.  At Dr. Levitt’s request, he will be on research leave until July 31, 2015, so as to allow him to complete ongoing research activities and speaking engagement commitments on behalf of the university. Dr. Levitt has decided to leave UNB in order to return to, and help advance, his home institution in Florida following completion of those commitments.

Dr. Levitt offered to voluntarily resign because he believes that it is in the best interests of his family and himself as well as that of the students, alumni, and faculty of UNB law, said Tony Secco, vice-president Fredericton (academic) at UNB.

The university will not be commenting further on the matter today but will be issuing a statement about the law school tomorrow morning, Wednesday, Mar. 18.
