UCC Heroes: Professor Mark Poustie, Dean of the School of Law

Professor Mark Poustie was nominated by his colleagues in the School of Law. They share:

“Appointed Dean of Law in May 2019, Mark has adapted to a new institution and role with impressive ease and alacrity. During the COVID-19 crisis, he has worked around the clock, giving input into decisions being made at all levels within the university and College; maintaining watchful concern for the wellbeing of students and staff alike, and dealing with every emerging problem with characteristic composure and conscientiousness. He wrote to staff on Fridays urging them to take time off at the weekend if at all possible, and now that the Exam Board is over we hope that he will take his own advice!”
