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.”
Professor Mathewson joined the law school’s faculty in 1983. Previously, he worked as a corporate, securities, and banking attorney in Denver. From 1997 to 2002, Professor Mathewson served as associate dean for academics at the law school. Since 2013, he has served as director of the Africana studies program at the university.
Professor Mathewson is a graduate of Howard University and Yale Law School.
