John McCullouch, Associate Dean Metro Jackson, will retire from his position effective March 1, 2017. He has served the law school in that capacity for five years.
“As the face of the law school in the capital city tri-county area, John has greatly increased the visibility and participation of the law school with the Mississippi Bar and the local bar associations and we owe him a debt of gratitude,” said Interim Dean Debbie Bell.
McCullouch received his law degree from Ole Miss in December of 1978, had a successful legal and then managerial career with BellSouth and AT&T, retiring in 2007.
“I want to thank former Dean Richard Gershon for his idea that the law school needed a presence in the Jackson area, for asking me to join his staff and for being one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. In addition, it’s been great working with Debbie Bell, a former law school classmate, as she has superbly lead the law school this past year and a half,” said McCullouch.
