Katrina Angela Pagonis will become an assistant professor of law at Hamline's Health Law Institute on July 1. She comes to Hamline from Nevada, where she most recently served as a law clerk to The Honorable Procter Hug., Jr., United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and earlier to The Honorable Edward C. Reed, Jr., United States District Court for the District of Nevada.
Pagonis was a teaching fellow at the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law in 2007-08 at Georgetown University Law Center, where she earned her JD in 2005. She also earned an LL.M. degree from Yale Law School, an MPH degree from John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, where she majored in both political science, and molecular and cell biology.
"Professor Pagonis brings exceptional academic, teaching and judicial experience to Hamline's Health Law Institute. She will be an important asset in our growing program,
which was ranked among the top 20 health law programs in the country by US News & World Report this year," said Hamline University School of Law Dean Donald M. Lewis.
