Dean Vischer writes:

In the wake of Prof. Levy-Pound’s decision to embark on a new chapter in her professional journey, I’m pleased to announce the following important additions to the law school community:

  • Carl Warren has agreed to join our community as a Visiting Professor of Law, teaching the Community Justice Project and serving as another full-time faculty presence for our clinic students.  Carl has been a professor at the University of Minnesota Law School since 1990.  He previously served as a trial attorney in the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office.  At the University of Minnesota, he also served as the faculty advisor to the Law School’s Civil Rights Moot Court and oversaw the William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition.  He has a B.A. from St. Olaf and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota.
  • Carmeann Foster has agreed to join our community as a Faculty Research Fellow.  She has received a Bush Foundation grant to support her research aimed at reducing the number of black youth in the juvenile justice system. She will work with our law students and social work students on this study, likely in conjunction with the Community Justice Project.  Carmeann has a B.A. from St. Catherine University and a J.D./M.S.W. from St. Thomas; she is completing her Ph.D. at Hamline.

Our mission calls us to integrate faith and reason in the search for truth through a focus on morality and social justice.  The Community Justice Project is one essential component of how we live out this mission.  Please join me in welcoming Carl and Carmeann as new partners in our shared work.

Thank you,
