Alfred Mathewson will serve as co-dean of the University of New Mexico School of Law. He will share the position with Sergio Pareja. Both men are professors at the law school.

In announcing the unique sharing of the position, University of New Mexico provost Chaouki Abdallah said that “the more I learned about the needs of the School of Law, the more my conviction grew that no one person can address the full spectrum of challenges of this period.”
