Dean Emeritus & Albert Abramson Professor of Law Emeritus
Most rewarding aspects of your engagement with the UCH community
The opportunity to give back and seeing the success of the some 4,000 students I taught in my career.
A recent community-oriented project you’ve spearheaded or participated in
Launching the Public Media Venture Group, a non-profit fundraising consortium of 25 public television stations.
A particularly meaningful experience as a mentor
As a Hastings student I mentored a struggling 2L. With a little help from me and a lot of hard work on her part, she earned an A- in Constitutional Law. My heart still swells at the memory.
Particularly meaningful honors
I’m proud to be the youngest person, and first person of color, elected chair of the KQED board. I’m also proud to have been the named party in the U.S. Supreme Court case Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, which vindicated Hastings’ equal treatment of LGBTQ students.
