Professor Mel Weresh of Drake Law School has been named as the Dwight D. Opperman Distinguished Professor of Law. Mel was selected based upon her high-quality scholarship, her leadership and service within our law school and the legal writing community, her cutting-edge teaching methods, and most likely her overall fabulousness.
Mel is a Past President of the Legal Writing Institute, a Past Chair of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Teaching Methods, and a co-author of Iowa Legal Research (Carolina Academic Press 2d ed. 2016).
Congratulations, Distinguished Professor Mel!
