From today's piece about the search for a new law dean in 'The Flat Hat,' a student newspaper at William and Mary:
Also listed is Lawrence Ponoroff, Dean of Tulane Law School and the Mitchell Franklin Professor of Private and Commercial Law. Ponoroff is an expert on bankruptcy and teaches courses at Tulane in business and commercial law. In 2005, Ponoroff was active in placing Tulane law students at other universities in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and aided with the eventual reopening of the New Orleans campus.
Aside from his position at Tulane, Ponoroff chairs the American Bar Association’s Committee on Graduate Legal Education and is a member of a number of national legal organizations.
