Savannah Law School (SLS), a branch of the ABA-accredited Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, today announced additional faculty appointments to the school that will open this Fall.
SLS appointed Kelly Anders, currently Director of Communications and Diversity at Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, NE, an Associate Professor who will teach Torts and other subjects. Her experience includes administrative and faculty positions at Washburn University School of Law and University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. Anders is also a seasoned author having written books, columns, and academic journal articles within the legal community. She earned a J.D. from Pepperdine and a Bachelor’s from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
SLS also named Kellyn McGee as Associate Professor. McGee’s course load will include Civil Procedure and Constitutional Law. Currently the Assistant General Counsel for the State Bar of Georgia, her background includes experience in grievance counseling, ethics training, negotiations and litigation management. With more than a decade of real-world legal experience, McGee will now transfer her skills to the classroom. She holds a J.D. and Bachelor’s from Howard University.
“I am confident that Kelly and Kellyn’s diverse legal and professional backgrounds will prove beneficial not only to future students but to Savannah Law School as well.” says Richardson Lynn, Dean and Professor of Law at SLS. “We will continue to identify faculty members with a combination of practice experience as well as experience teaching at ABA-accredited institutions.”
