Dean's Message


My 20-year career in private practice has given me a unique perspective on the importance of practical instruction at the law school level. Access to the law, both for students and for low and moderate-income clients, is my passion.  Lincoln students graduate ready to help in their communities and that’s what I am committed to in my work with Lincoln.

Dean, Lincoln Law School of San Jose
