iLaw today announced that Michael Gregory, Director of New Markets with Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, will become its Senior Vice President of Business Development, reporting to CEO and President, Dean Emeritus Ken Randall. Mr. Gregory will help build on iLaw’s successful track record of delivering high-quality distance-learning courses for law schools in the U.S. and globally.

“Mike’s transition from a traditional publishing house to a technology innovator signifies the role of high quality online teaching in legal education, complementing campus learning with distance education,” said Dean Randall. “Mike has been a leader in digital products and expanding the footprint of traditional legal education. We are thrilled to have someone with Mike’s reputation, experience, and success joining our team and helping to build iLaw’s future.”
