Historical Note

Pamela Gann served as the Dean of the Duke University Law School from 1988 to 1999.

Pamela Gann was born in North Carolina and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, graduating in 1970 with a degree in mathematics. She attended Duke University Law School and graduated in 1973, then practiced law for two years before returning to Duke as a professor of tax and international law. She became Dean of Duke Law in 1988 and served in that role until 1999. During her time as Dean, she established a summer international program in Europe and Asia, expanded the public law program, prioritized environmental studies and made interdisciplinary connections with the Nicholas School of the Environment, and led the Law School's first capital campaign, raising more than $17 million.

In 1999 Gann left Duke Law to become the president of Claremont McKenna College in California. She is a fellow of the American Bar Foundation, and served on the Board of Directors of the Council on Foreign Relations, the International Women's Forum, and the American Law Institute. An endowed professorship at Duke Law, the Pamela B. Gann Professor of Law, is named for her.
