In his capacity, as associate dean he leads a team of academic service professionals that oversee courses, registration, exam administration, graduation, bar certification and other academic policy.

In his strategic initiatives role, Mr. Levy assists with researching, analyzing, planning, and implementing new programs and systems to enhance Miami Law.

Additionally, Mr. Levy is responsible in helping design and implement unique and timely curricular additions. Two examples include courses developed and implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic; Lawyering in a Pandemic and The Law of Force Majeure: Impact of the Pandemic of Sports and Entertainment. Each of these courses looked at the role lawyers play during and post-pandemic. It brought together multiple faculty from across the law school and our Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law LL.M. program to help prepare students for the world they were living through and about to enter as professionals.
During the pandemic, Levy also co-founded and co-directed the Summer Legal Academy as a free online program for college and high school students in hopes to provide students in both groups the opportunity to broaden their understanding of the law school and the legal profession. The program, put together in under a month, included three weeks of required courses (traditional first year courses), electives, guest speakers, workshops and a moot court exercise. High school students were also paired with law student mentors and all students had law student dean’s fellows to help them throughout the program. The inaugural academy had over 5,000 students apply for 140 spots. Of the 74 undergraduate schools represented, 61% were women, 45% identified as Black/African American, 54% identified as Hispanic/Latinx, and 44% were first generation college students.
In his role as Director of the Graduate Program (LL.M) in Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law, Levy oversees and coordinates all aspects of the Program including recruitment, curriculum, guest speakers, the annual conference, public speaking events, student practica and other program initiatives. Levy helped launch the Program and was the inaugural Deputy Director before being asked to take over as Director in 2019.
