Bayrex Martí, currently Assistant Dean for Student Life at the University of Michigan Law School, will join UCLA School of Law in January as the school's Assistant Dean of Student Affairs. In his new role, Martí will lead the UCLA Law department that works closely with the dean and faculty on all aspects of student success and wellness, provides counseling on academic and personal matters to individual students, supports and guides the school's 61 student organizations and 15 journals and coordinates a wide range of student activities.
Martí has held top administrative positions in admissions, financial aid and student life at three distinguished law schools. Before leading the Office of Student Life at the University of Michigan Law School, he spent five years as Executive Director of Admissions and Financial Aid at Villanova University's Charles Widger School of Law and five years as Associate Director of Admissions at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
He earned his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School and a B.A. in political science, summa cum laude, from the University of Puerto Rico.
"We are thrilled that Bayrex will be joining UCLA Law," said Dean Jennifer Mnookin. "One of our hallmarks is providing a supportive and collaborative learning environment where students thrive. Bayrex's passion for legal education and student success, as well as his experience at several terrific institutions, will be of great benefit to our students and the school."
