Raymond C. Pierce did not plan to become dean of North Carolina Central University School of Law in 2005. "If somebody had told me five years ago I'd be a law school dean, I'd have said they were crazy," said Pierce, formerly a partner with Baker Hostetler. He has tackled funding issues at NCCU law, a school of second chances that considers students whose LSAT and GPA would exclude them elsewhere. He says his job keeps him closer to "the original purpose of the law, to right wrongs and seek justice."
