In wonderful news for SMU Law, Tulane Law Professor Pamela Metzger will be moving to Dallas to lead SMU's Deason Family Criminal Justice Reform Center. Pam joined Tulane in 2001 directing the school's Criminal Law Clinic and made a particular mark on the world of legal practice leading efforts to insure that thousands of inmates incarcerated in the aftermath of Katrina received representation. She's s an exceptional catch for SMU because in addition to being a great scholar and teacher, she is truly a lawyer's lawyer. And a very cool person as well. Congratulations all around.
