Linda L. Ammons is the first woman and the first African American to lead Widener University School of Law, and one of only six African American females in the nation serving as dean of a law school. Ammons came to Widener in 2006 from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in Cleveland, Ohio, where she was associate dean and professor of law. She is serving as the Chair of the curriculum Committee of the American Bar Association’s Section of Legal Education & Admissions to the Bar and is serving a three-year term on the Government Relations Committee of the Association of American Law Schools. In May 2009, she was named a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. Most recently, Dean Ammons presented Governor Jack Markell with a summary and her recommendations as the appointed special investigator in the case of the alleged child molestations by former pediatrician Earl Bradley.
The Women in Business Forum was formed to support, develop and promote Delaware women in business through networking, education and information exchange by providing connections to accomplished leaders in business and legislature, and working in partnership with existing organizations with a common purpose.
