Timothy Fisher, new dean of the UConn Law School, center, talks during a reception in his honor Wednesday. The UConn Law School has picked Fisher as its new dean, unusual because Fisher was a partner in a local law firm, not an academic. Wednesday 17 Hartford law firms held a reception for Fisher at the Bingham McCutchen law offices in downtown Hartford. Gov. Malloy, at left, Daniel I.
