WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – When Martin Pritikin began searching for someone to fill the new position of associate dean of experiential learning for Concord Law School at Purdue Global, he didn’t have to look far.
The Concord dean selected an experienced member of his faculty: Kelley Mauerman.
“Having an administrator focused on experiential learning makes perfect sense for Concord, given our emphasis on practical skills training,” Pritikin said. “And I can’t think of anyone better suited for the role than Kelley. She has extensive experience in both the practice of law and in teaching, and she has been integrating the two effectively for years.”
Mauerman has been with Concord since 2018, having created the school’s professional responsibility and cross-professional ethics courses. She oversees the legal writing department and serves as director of the externship program and as a competition coach for the moot court team.
“I am proud to be a part of an innovative team and excited that the new associate dean of experiential learning position emphasizes the importance of preparing Concord’s students and graduates for the rapidly changing legal profession,” Mauerman said. “I look forward to the opportunity to continue investing in the law school’s bright future in legal education.”
